||It is possible for the first time to provide
an estimation of the Donnan potential, from the [H+] values in
the two compartments (cytosol and intermembrane space) by means of the Nernst equation.
||Interestingly, a value of 43 mV was obtained, which is
very similar to the voltage required in electrophysiological
experiments to switch the conductance of Voltage-dependent anion channel (VDAC)
incorporated in a planar membrane from a high to a
low conductance (15–40 mV).
