Brief Description & Uses

100 g of monoclonal antibody reactive against porin for use in Western blotting applications.

The channel-forming protein porin (also called the voltage dependent anion channel, VDAC) is involved in both aerobic metabolism and apoptotic processes. Porin is localized in the outer membrane of mitochondria where it forms the primary pathway of metabolites across the membrane. Porin can also serve as a binding site for enzymes or a regulatory molecule.

Multiple isoforms of porin have been identified in mammals and plants. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae one isoform showing properties that are conserved among other species has been identified (POR1). The second gene (POR2) discovered does not exhibit the channel forming activity. However, yeast strains in which the POR1 gene has been deleted (Dpor1) can still grow on yeast media containing a nonfermentable carbon source. Thus, the second protein present can partially substitute for that function in a non-channel dependent way.
