Thinnes Received: 14 February 2012 / Accepted: 29 February 2012 / Published online: 27 March 2012 Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2012 The recently published paper by Teijido et al. 2012 reﬁnes Plasmalemmal type-1 VDAC is a candidate for the the voltage-dependent anion channel (VDAC) model pro- VSOAC (Thinnes et al. 1990, 2000; Okada et al. 2004; posed by Marco Colombini (Colombini 2009). It also refers Parsons et al. 2011). Additionally, this VDAC is engaged to data on the accessibility of the VDAC’s N-terminus at in the apoptotic processes that occur in vertebrates, starting the cytosolic side of mitochondria (De Pinto et al. 1991; with apoptotic volume decrease (AVD) (Elinder et al. Guo et al. 1995). The traditional view is in trouble since 2005; Akanda et al. 2008; Thinnes 2009b, c; Thinnes 2011; crystallographic investigations on mammalian type-1 Hur et al. 2012; Marin et al. 2012). For a recent discussion VDAC point to a ß-barrel structure, with the N-terminal of data on cell membrane standing VDAC, the
