This site will become
a repository for information on the mitochondrial channel
called VDAC (also referred to as mitochondrial porin). It
will feature the basic information on the structure, function,
and properties of VDAC both in reconstituted systems and in vivo.
Since there are controversial aspects to this channel, alternative
opinions and views will be included. The operators of the
site will decide what is most likely the correct view and
feature this. Competing views will be featured to a greater
or lesser degree depending on their merit (in the opinion
of the operators of the site). Contributions are encouraged
but may be edited prior to being placed on the site.
