Aquaporin Antibody

Hi.
I work with C. elegans. I am looking for antibodies which would recognise C. elegans aquaporin-1. It is more similar to human aqp-10 than other aqp. So far I have not been able to find any which would work.
If somebody has worked with aquaporins, I would like their help. Maybe I have missed a polyclonal antibody or a pan-AQP Ab. Here is the seq of C. elegans AQP-1

Hi varsha,

Hi varsha,

Here is a link to a page of aquaporin abs. None of them say they are specific to C. Elegans, but they may be worth a try. The company might send you a free sample to confirm reaction in another species. Its worth a call.
Here is the link:

(I'm gonna move this post over to antibody based technologies to see if we can get another response)
