Group IIIA-metal hydroxides indirectly neutralize the voltage sensor of the voltage-dependent mitochondrial channel, VDAC, by interacting with a dynamic binding site.


The voltage-dependent, anion-selective mitochondrial channel, VDAC, undergoes two different conformational changes from the open to a closed state under positive and negative applied electric fields. Micromolar quantities of aluminum hydroxide and other metal trihydroxides have recently been shown to be able to inhibit this voltage-dependent closure (Dill… (More)
