Entrez Gene summary for AQP4 Gene:
This gene encodes a member of the aquaporin family of intrinsic membrane proteins that function as water-selective
channels in the plasma membranes of many cells. The encoded protein is the predominant aquaporin found in brain.
Two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been found for this gene. (provided
by RefSeq, Jul 2008)

GeneCards Summary for AQP4 Gene:
AQP4 (aquaporin 4) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with AQP4 include neuromyelitis optica, and brain edema. GO annotations related to this gene include porin activity and water transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is ENSG00000250424.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: AQP4_HUMAN, P55087
Function: Forms a water-specific channel. Osmoreceptor which regulates body water balance and mediates water flow
within the central nervous system
