Objective: Aquaporins (AQP) are well known water-channel proteins; in particular AQP4 is known to be involved in the development and resorption of brain edema. The functional impact of further AQPs on brain edema remains unclear. We recently demonstrated an association of the AQP5 Polymorphism A(-1364)C[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
