Introduction: One family of small integral membrane proteins called "aquaporins" have crucial role in water transport. Aquaporin-4 (AQP4), a double-sided water channel protein, shows the highest levels of AQP4 in the central nervous system. AQP4 binds to a subset of potassium channels such as Kir4.1 and Kir5.1, which can affect synaptic transmission. Conclusion: Thus, AQP4 have crucial role in alterations of synaptic plasticity and cognition which implicated in diverse neurological diseases such as epilepsy.
