    ..present study we show that the respiratory defect of C129/U1 is rescuable by two multicopy suppressors, SCO1 and SCO2. SCO1 was earlier reported to code for a mitochondrial inner membrane protein with an essential function in ..

    ..Interestingly, the peroxide sensitivity of the sco1 null strain can be suppressed by overexpressing either SCO2 or COX11, although overexpression of neither SCO1 nor SCO2 can rescue the cox11 null strain...
