QuickView for aquaporin 2 (gene)

Gene Symbol:
AQP2 Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
aquaporin 2
AQP-CD, WCH-CD, aquaporin-2, ADH water channel, AQP-2, aquaporin 2 (collecting duct), aquaporin-CD, collecting duct water channel protein, water channel protein for renal collecting duct, water-channel aquaporin 2
Genomic Location:
Chr 12: 48630796-48638931
This gene encodes a water channel protein located in the kidney collecting tubule. It belongs to the MIP/aquaporin family, some members of which are clustered together on chromosome 12q13. Mutations in this gene have been linked to autosomal dominant and recessive forms of nephrogenic diabetes insipidus.
