The aquaglyceroporin aquaporin 7 (AQP7) is dynamically expressed in mouse uteri undergoing decidualization after implantation. The expansion of AQP7 during uterine decidualization is associated with elevated uterine glycerol accumulation and glycerol kinase expression, suggesting that glycerol might be a potential energy substrate involved in the process of decidualization.
