    ..We have identified a new subunit of the TIM23 complex, the inner membrane protein Mgr2. Mitochondria lacking Mgr2 were deficient in the Tim21-containing sorting form of the TIM23 complex...

    ..We report that the small hydrophobic protein Mgr2 controls the lateral release of preproteins. Mgr2 interacts with preproteins in transit through the TIM23 complex...

    ..We show that the TIM23 subunit Mgr2 is processed by IMP, but not by MPP...

    ..Thus, a replenishment cycle of co-chaperones at the TIM23 complex is an integral part of Hsp70's ATPase cycle at the channel exit site and essential to maintain motor-driven mitochondrial protein import. ..

    ..The ??- and Pam17-dependent import step identified in this study is positioned between the two known energy-dependent steps: ??-driven presequence translocation and adenosine triphosphate-driven import motor activity. ..
