Target

  • Function
    Forms a water-specific channel that provides the plasma membranes of renal collecting duct with high permeability to water, thereby permitting water to move in the direction of an osmotic gradient.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in renal collecting tubules.
  • Involvement in disease
    Diabetes insipidus, nephrogenic, autosomal
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the MIP/aquaporin (TC 1.A.8) family.
  • Domain
    Aquaporins contain two tandem repeats each containing three membrane-spanning domains and a pore-forming loop with the signature motif Asn-Pro-Ala (NPA).
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Ser-256 phosphorylation is necessary and sufficient for expression at the apical membrane. Endocytosis is not phosphorylation-dependent.
  • Cellular localization
    Apical cell membrane. Basolateral cell membrane. Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane. Golgi apparatus, trans-Golgi network membrane. Shuttles from vesicles to the apical membrane. Vasopressin-regulated phosphorylation is required for translocation to the apical cell membrane. PLEKHA8/FAPP2 is required to transport AQP2 from the TGN to sites where AQP2 is phosphorylated.
