  • Function
    Forms a water-specific channel that provides the plasma membranes of red cells and kidney proximal tubules with high permeability to water, thereby permitting water to move in the direction of an osmotic gradient.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in a number of tissues including erythrocytes, renal tubules, retinal pigment epithelium, heart, lung, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas. Weakly expressed in brain, placenta and liver.
  • 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).

  • ab15080 staining Aquaporin 1 in human kidney tubule tissue sections by IHC-P (formaldehyde-fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue samples were fixed with formaldehyde. Antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in citrate buffer (20 minutes at 100°C). Samples were incubated with primary antibody 1/2000(background reducer diluent) for 20 minutes at 25°C. An undiluted HRP polymer Goat anti mouse/rabbit monoclonal IgG was used as secondary antibody.

  • ab15080 staining Aquaporin 1 in the intervertebral disc (nucleus pulposus) of the cow cell line by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.5% Triton X-100 and blocked with 10% serum for 30 minutes at 21°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/200) for 24 hours at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated Goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody (1/200).

  • ab15080 staining Aquaporin1 in porcine jejunum by immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections). Tissue underwent fixation in paraformaldehyde without undergoing permeabilization and blocking steps. The primary antibody diluted 1/500 and incubated with sample for 24 hours. A Texas Red® conjugated goat polyclonal IgG whole molecule to rabbit, diluted 1/400 was used as the secondary.

  • ab15080 staining Aquaporin 1 in rat 9L (gliosarcoma) cells by Immunocytochemistry.

    Cells were kept under normoxic conditions (upper panel) or exposed to hypoxia (lower panel). Cells were then fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized in 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS, before being blocked with 10% fetal calf serum + 1 mg/ml BSA in PBS overnight at 4°C. Samples were subsequently incubated with primary antibody (1/500 in diluent) and a peroxidase-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG was used as a secondary antibody. Samples were stained using DAB and counter-stained with hematoxylin.
  • ab15080 at 1/500 dilution, staining Aquaporin 1 in sheep duodenum section by immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections). Sections were paraformaldehyde fixed and incubated with ab15080, for 24 hours. A Texas Red® conjugated goat polyclonal to rabbit Ig, diluted 1/400 was used as the secondary antibody.
