|Protein Name||Voltage-dependent anion-selective channel protein 1(VDAC-1/hVDAC1)|
|Molecular Weight||30773 MW|
|Protein Function||Forms a channel through the mitochondrial outer membrane and also the plasma membrane. The channel at the outer mitochondrial membrane allows diffusion of small hydrophilic molecules; in the plasma membrane it is involved in cell volume regulation and apoptosis. It 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. May participate in the formation of the permeability transition pore complex (PTPC) responsible for the release of mitochondrial products that triggers apoptosis. .|
|Tissue Specificity||Heart, liver and skeletal muscle.|
|Sequence Similarities||Belongs to the eukaryotic mitochondrial porin family.|
|Subcellular Localization||Mitochondrion outer membrane . Cell membrane .|
|Alternative Names||Voltage-dependent anion-selective channel protein 1;VDAC-1;hVDAC1;Outer mitochondrial membrane protein porin 1;Plasmalemmal porin;Porin 31HL;Porin 31HM;VDAC1;VDAC;|

1. Post-translational modification:phosphorylation, methylation, glycosylation etc. These modifications prevent SDS molecules from binding to the target protein and thus make the band size appear larger than expected
2. Post-translational cleavage: this can cause smaller bands and or multiple bands
3. Alternative splicing: the same gene can have alternative splicing patterns generating different size proteins, all with reactivities to the antibody.
4. Amino Acid R chain charge: SDS binds to positive charges. The different size and charge of the Amino Acid side chains can affect the amount of SDS binding and thus affect the observed band size.
5. Multimers: Multimers are usually broken up in reducing conditions. However if the interactions between the multimers are strong, the band may appear higher.,
