Lemaire C, Robineau S, Netter P. Molecular and biochemical analysis of Saccharomyces cerevisiae cox1 mutants. Curr Genet. 1998;34:138-45 pubmed
..A comparison of the steady state levels of Cox1p through Cox4p in the COX1, COX2, COX3 and COX4 mutants shows the interdependance of the accumulation of these four subunits in the mitochondrial membranes. ..

..In addition, although respiratory function is dispensable in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, we show that the simultaneous inactivation of AFG3 and YME1 is lethal and that the essential function does not reside in their protease activity. ..
