    ..A CEN plasmid-encoded YMIP protein restored normal MIP activity along with respiratory competence. Thus, YMIP is a functional homolog of RMIP and represents a new component of the yeast mitochondrial import machinery. ..

    ..Our results suggest that Icp55 is critical for stabilization of the mitochondrial proteome and illustrate how the N-proteome can serve as rich source for a systematic analysis of mitochondrial protein targeting, cleavage and turnover. ..

    ..We show that Yfh1p interacts functionally with yeast mitochondrial intermediate peptidase ( OCT1 gene, YMIP polypeptide), a metalloprotease required for maturation of ferrochelatase and other iron-utilizing ..

    ..In contrast, C131 and C581 are important for protein stability but are not required for activity in vivo or in vitro. These findings are consistent with MIP being a metallopeptidase. ..
