Gene: Aqp7 (aquaporin 7) Mus musculus
Symbol: Aqp7
Name: aquaporin 7
Description: Predicted to have glycerol channel activity; urea channel activity; and water channel activity. Involved in glycerol transport and renal water absorption. Localizes to integral component of plasma membrane. Colocalizes with lipid droplet. Is expressed in early conceptus; gonad; liver; and metanephros. Orthologous to several human genes including AQP7 (aquaporin 7); PARTICIPATES IN water transport pathway; INTERACTS WITH (R)-adrenaline; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: AQP-7; AQP7L; AQPap; aquaglyceroporin-7; aquaporin-7
