Voltage-dependent anion-selective channel protein 1 or Outer Mitochondrial Membrane Protein Porin 1 is encoded by the gene VDAC1 and belongs to the mitochondrial porin family. VDAC1 is a voltage-dependent anion channel protein that is a major component of the outer mitochondrial membrane and is also found on the plasma membrane of cells. VDAC1 can act as a scaffold for many proteins and allows for the passage of ions and metabolites, including ATP, through interactions within the pore. VDAC1 in the plasma membrane plays a role in the regulation of cell volume and apoptosis. VDAC1 is expressed in several tissues including heart, brain, liver and skeletal muscle. Diseases associated with VDAC1 include Influenza and Typhoid Fever.

Store at ≤ -20 C for long term storage. For short term storage, store at 2-8 C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the vial prior to removing the cap.
Does not cross-react with VDAC2 or VDAC3 (based on KO validation results)
Each new lot of this antibody is tested to confirm that it recognizes a single immunoreactive band of expected molecular weight when used to probe brain lysate.
These antibodies are to be used as research laboratory reagents and are not for use as diagnostic or therapeutic reagents in humans.
