Description
Exhibits water transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in lens fiber cell morphogenesis. Predicted to localize to integral component of membrane and plasma membrane. Is expressed in eye; lens; lens fiber cell; and solid lens vesicle. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cataract and cataract 15 multiple types. Orthologous to human MIP (major intrinsic protein of lens fiber).
