GeneCards Summary for AQP11 Gene
AQP11 (Aquaporin 11) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with AQP11 include Diabetes Insipidus, Nephrogenic, Autosomal and Failure Of Tooth Eruption, Primary. Among its related pathways are Nanog in Mammalian ESC Pluripotency and Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transporter activity and water channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is AQP12B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for AQP11 Gene
Channel protein that facilitates the transport of water, glycerol and hydrogen peroxide across membrane of cell or organelles guaranteeing intracellular homeostasis in several organes like liver, kidney and brain (PubMed:24845055, PubMed:24918044, PubMed:31546170). In situation of stress, participates in endoplasmic reticulum (ER) homeostasis by regulating redox homeostasis through the transport of hydrogen peroxide across the endoplasmic reticulum membrane thereby regulating the oxidative stress through the NADPH oxidase 2 pathway (PubMed:31546170). Plays a role by maintaining an environment suitable for translation or protein foldings in the ER lumen namely by participating in the PKD1 glycosylation processing resulting in regulation of PKD1 membrane trafficking thereby preventing the accumulation of unfolding protein in ER (By similarity). Plays a role in the proximal tubule function by regulating its endosomal acidification (By similarity). May play a role in postnatal kidney development (By similarity).
Aquaporins (AQPs) are integral membrane proteins that facilitate the transport of water across biological membranes along an osmotic gradient. There have been 13 AQP isoforms (AQP0-AQP12) identified in humans and rodents to date.
