26947058 The works available on VDAC cysteines support the notion that VDAC1, VDAC2, and VDAC3 proteins are paralogs with a similar pore-function and slightly different, but important, ancillary biological functions. (Review)
26487717 The evolutionary demand for the NTE in the presence of cysteines clearly emerges from our biochemical and functional studies, providing insight into factors that functionally demarcate hVDAC-2 from the other VDACs.
26417093 Motifs of VDAC2 required for mitochondrial Bak import and tBid-induced apoptosis.
25617717 Results show that in thyroid tumours and cell lines, VDAC2 is upregulated and BAK1 downregulated. Also, transient knockdown of VDAC2 promoted upregulation of the BAK1 expression, and increased susceptibility to sorafenib treatment.
25583988 RACK1 plays an antiapoptotic role during IBDV infection via interaction with VDAC2 and VP5.
25341036 These data suggest that an interaction between Mcl-1 and VDAC promotes lung cancer cell migration by a mechanism that involves Ca(2+)-dependent reactive oxygen species production.
25187518 GSK-3beta translocates from the cytosol to mitochondria in a kinase activity- and VDAC2-dependent manner in which an N-terminal domain of GSK-3beta may function as a mitochondrial targeting sequence
24642864 Cysteine residues impact the stability and micelle interaction dynamics of the human mitochondrial beta-barrel anion channel VDAC-2.
23874603 A stable-isotope labeling by amino acids in cell culture coupled with mass spectrometry-based proteomics identifies downregulation of voltage-dependent anion channel 2 (VDAC2) expression by HIV-1 Vpr in Vpr transduced macrophages
23873934 minor conformational variations in local residues are sufficient to define the membrane protein dynamics in hVDAC-2.
