Aqp11 encodes aquaporins (AQPs) that 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. Aquaporins facilitate the transport of water and small neutral solutes across cell membranes.
