Crista junctions (CJs) are important for mitochondrial organization and function, but the molecular basis of their formation and architecture is obscure. We have identified and characterized a mitochondrial membrane protein in yeast, Fcj1 (formation of CJ protein 1), which is specifically enriched in CJs. Cells lacking Fcj1 lack CJs, exhibit concentric(More)
The yeast gene MCR1 encodes two isoforms of the mitochondrial NADH-cytochrome b5 reductase. One form is embedded in the outer membrane whereas the other is located in the intermembrane space (IMS). In the present work we investigated the biogenesis of the outer membrane form. We demonstrate that while the IMS form crosses the outer membrane via the(More)
