General description

AQP4 is an osmoreceptor that regulates water flow in the CNS. It is abundant in astrocytes, but is also weakly noticeable in pulmonary, intestinal, ocular and renal tissues. Rabbit Anti-Water Channel Aquaporin 4 antibody recognizes aquaporin 4 in human, mice and rats.

Physical form

Lyophilized from phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 1% bovine serum albumin, and 0.05% sodium azide.


Rabbit Anti-Water Channel Aquaporin 4 antibody can be used for immunohistochemical applications. The antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry, western blot and flow cytometry applications.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Immunoprecipation and western blot analysis using HEK-293 cells that had been transfected with GFP-AQP4 was performed using rabbit anti-AQP4 as the primary antibody at 2μl/ml.
