Background: Biochemical characterization of voltage-dependent anion channel 2 (VDAC2) is limited due to an inability to obtain functional protein. Results: The crystal structure ofVDAC2suggests a dimer interface that is confirmed by double electron-electron resonance and cross-linking. Conclusion: zfVDAC2 has a fractional dimeric population. Significance: VDAC isoforms are structurally similar, but this study has identified a number of hot spots that require further exploration. © 2014 by The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Inc.
