1.B.8.1.6
Voltage-dependent anion-selective porin1 (Porin-1, VDAC or Por-1) (De Pinto et al. 1989; Aiello et al., 2004) (one of three paralogues). Mutations in VDAC leads to neurologic dysfunction and male infertility in Drosophila  (Graham et al., 2010).  Porin 1 is abundantly expressed in both male and female germ cell tissues; Porin 2 is abundant in testis but in small amounts in ovaries. The immuno-histological stain of ovaries shows that Porin isoform 1 is selectively targeted to follicular cells while Porin isoform 2 is present in mitochondria of the epithelial sheath cells of the ovariole (Guarino et al. 2006; Specchia et al. 2008).
