Defects of the mitochondrial K(+)/H(+) exchanger (KHE) result in increased matrix K(+) content, swelling, and autophagic decay of the organelle. We have previously identified the yeast Mdm38 and its human homologue LETM1, the candidate gene for seizures in Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, as essential components of the KHE. In a genome-wide screen for multicopy(More)
Under conditions of environmental stress, the plasma membrane is involved in several regulatory processes to promote cell survival, like maintenance of signaling pathways, cell wall organization and intracellular ion homeostasis. PUN1 encodes a plasma membrane protein localizing to the ergosterol-rich membrane compartment occupied also by the arginine(More)
