- An ER-mitochondria tethering complex revealed by a synthetic biology screenBenoît Kornmann
Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, University of California at San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 94158, USA
Science 325:477-81. 2009..The tethering complex localized to discrete foci, suggesting that discrete sites of close apposition between ER and mitochondria facilitate interorganelle calcium and phospholipid exchange...
- ERMES-mediated ER-mitochondria contacts: molecular hubs for the regulation of mitochondrial biologyBenoît Kornmann
Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, University of California at San Francisco, CA 94158, USA
J Cell Sci 123:1389-93. 2010..Finally, we discuss how cells might use ER-mitochondria communication to fine-tune these processes according to their metabolic needs...
- The conserved GTPase Gem1 regulates endoplasmic reticulum-mitochondria connectionsBenoît Kornmann
Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics and Howard Hughes Medical Institute, University of California, San Francisco, CA 94158, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 108:14151-6. 2011..Furthermore, we provide evidence that the metazoan Gem1 ortholog Miro-1 localizes to sites of ER-mitochondrial contact, suggesting that some of the features ascribed to Gem1 may be evolutionarily conserved...
