<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome.

Forms a water-specific channel (PubMed:8660998, PubMed:9276712, PubMed:18286643). Plays an important role in brain water homeostasis and in glymphatic solute transport (PubMed:22896675, PubMed:27751903, PubMed:30561329, PubMed:30557661). Required for a normal rate of water exchange across the blood brain interface (PubMed:30557661). Required for normal levels of cerebrospinal fluid influx into the brain cortex and parenchyma along paravascular spaces that surround penetrating arteries, and for normal drainage of interstitial fluid along paravenous drainage pathways. Thereby, it is required for normal clearance of solutes from the brain interstitial fluid, including soluble beta-amyloid peptides derived from APP (PubMed:22896675, PubMed:27751903, PubMed:30561329). Plays a redundant role in urinary water homeostasis and urinary concentrating ability (PubMed:9276712).7 Publications

Mice are born at the expected Mendelian rate and display no obvious phenotype (PubMed:9276712, PubMed:10915655). They have normal urine osmolality under standard conditions, but display reduced urine osmolality after 36 hour water deprivation (PubMed:9276712). Adult mice display incereased brain water content (PubMed:27751903). Mutant mice display a reduced rate of water flux across the blood brain interface (PubMed:30557661). Fluid transport from the brain paravascular space into the surrounding interstitium is abolished. Besides, mice display strongly reduced solute clearance from the brain interstitium (PubMed:22896675). Mice display reduced cerebrospinal fluid influx into the brain, and reduced brain solute transport via the cerebrospinal fluid from the cisterna to the brain parenchyma (PubMed:22896675, PubMed:30561329). The organ of Corti in the inner ear appears morphologically normal, but mice have considerably impaired hearing at an age of 4 to 5 weeks (PubMed:11406631). Mice display unchanged gastric acid secretion (PubMed:10915655).7 Publications
