- Aquaporin 3
Name=aquaporin 3 (Gill blood group)
Aquaporin 3 is found in the basolateral cell membrane of principal
collecting ductcells and provide a pathway for water to exit these cells.cite journal | author = Sasaki S, Ishibashi K, Marumo F | title = Aquaporin-2 and -3: representatives of two subgroups of the aquaporin family colocalized in the kidney collecting duct | journal = Annu.
