Summaries for VDAC2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for VDAC2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the voltage-dependent anion channel pore-forming family of proteins that are considered the main pathway for metabolite diffusion across the mitochondrial outer membrane. The encoded protein is also thought to be involved in the mitochondrial apoptotic pathway via regulation of BCL2-antagonist/killer 1 protein activity. Pseudogenes have been identified on chromosomes 1, 2, 12 and 21, and alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for VDAC2 Gene

VDAC2 (Voltage Dependent Anion Channel 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with VDAC2 include Alzheimer Disease Mitochondrial. Among its related pathways are Cytoskeletal Signaling and Apoptosis and survival_Regulation of Apoptosis by Mitochondrial Proteins. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleotide binding and voltage-gated anion channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is VDAC1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for VDAC2 Gene

  • 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.
