Target

  • Function
    Forms a channel through the mitochondrial outer membrane that allows diffusion of small hydrophilic molecules. The channel adopts an open conformation at low or zero membrane potential and a closed conformation at potentials above 30-40 mV. The open state has a weak anion selectivity whereas the closed state is cation-selective.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in all tissues examined.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the eukaryotic mitochondrial porin family.
  • Domain
    Consists mainly of a membrane-spanning beta-barrel formed by 19 beta-strands.
  • Cellular localization
    Mitochondrion outer membrane.

Customer reviews and Q&As

Thank you for contacting us. Unfortunately, both VDAC1 and VDAC3 are very homologous with VDAC2. While we have not tested these antibodies specifically for cross-reactivity with VDAC1 and VDAC3, the antibodies ab37985 and ab118872 show ˜67% homology wi...
