The VDAC Family [Function: Specific channels] Seed alignment | Full alignment in OMPdb

The voltage-dependent anion channel protein (VDAC) is the main protein of the mitochondrial outer membrane of all eukaryotes. VDAC regulates the movement of metabolites from the cytoplasm to the mitochondrion and vice-versa. Through this function, VDAC organizes various cellular processes like metabolism, apoptosis, calcium homeostasis and thus has an effect on a lot of diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. VDAC forms a beta barrel architecture constituted of 19 beta strands.
