Aquaporins—among them, AQP5—are responsible for transporting water across biological membranes, which is an important process in all living organisms. The transient receptor potential channel 4 (TRPV4) is a cation channel that is mostly calcium-permeable and can also be activated by osmotic stimuli. It plays a role in a number of different functions in the body, e.g., the development of bones and cartilage, and it is involved in the body’s osmoregulation, the generation of certain types of sensation (pain), and apoptosis. Our earlier studies on the uterus and the literature data aroused our interest in the physiological role of the cooperation of AQP5 and TRPV4. In this review, we focus on the co-expression and cooperation of AQP5 and TRPV4 in the lung, salivary glands, uterus, adipose tissues, and lens. Understanding the cooperation between AQP5 and TRPV4 may contribute to the development of new drug candidates and the therapy of several disorders (e.g., preterm birth, cataract, ischemia/reperfusion-induced edema, exercise- or cold-induced asthma).
