1.A.8.9.10
Aqp9 or Aqp-h9 of 294 aas.  Takes up glycerol as well as water, and thereby contributes to freeze tolerance (Hirota et al. 2015). An almost identical orthologue, HC-9 in Dryophytes chrysoscelis (gray treefrog), similarly facilitates glycerol permeability. Both the transcriptional and translational levels of HC-9 change in response to thermal challenges, with a unique increase in liver during freezing and thawing (Stogsdill et al. 2017).
