This gene encodes a member of the aquaglyceroporin family of integral membrane proteins. Members of this family function as water-permeable channels in the epithelia of organs that absorb and excrete water. This protein was shown to function as a water-selective channel, and could also permeate neutral solutes such as glycerol and urea. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
