A minor Hsp70 chaperone of the mitochondrial matrix of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Ssq1, is involved in the formation or repair of Fe/S clusters and/or mitochondrial iron metabolism. Here, we report evidence that Jac1, a J-type chaperone of the mitochondrial matrix, is the partner of Ssq1 in this process. Reduced activity of Jac1 results in a decrease in(More)
The mitochondrial matrix of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae contains two molecular chaperones of the Hsp70 class, Ssc1 and Ssq1. We report that Ssc1 and Ssq1 play sequential roles in the import and maturation of the yeast frataxin homologue (Yfh1). In vitro, radiolabeled Yfh1 was not imported into ssc1-3 mutant mitochondria, remaining in a(More)
Glaciers are retreating and predatory invertebrates rapidly colonize deglaciated, barren ground. The paradox of establishing predators before plants and herbivores has been explained by wind-driven input of invertebrate prey. Here we present an alternative explanation and a novel glacier foreland food web by showing that pioneer predators eat locally(More)
A large and growing body of evidence has demonstrated that airborne scanning light detection and ranging (lidar) systems can be an effective tool in measuring and monitoring above-ground forest tree biomass. However, the potential of lidar as an all-round tool for assisting in assessment of carbon (C) stocks in soil and non-tree vegetation components of the(More)
Seedling recruitment is a critical life history stage for trees, and successful recruitment is tightly linked to both abiotic factors and biotic interactions. In order to better understand how tree species’ distributions may change in response to anticipated climate change, more knowledge of the effects of complex climate and biotic interactions is needed.(More)
During the review process of Tingstad et al. 2015 (Oecolo-gia 179:599-608) data in Figs. 1 and 2, panels b and d, for gap and intact vegetation were reversed and this error was not caught until after the paper was published. The correct figures, showing that spruce seedling emergence, establishment (Fig. 1b) and biomass (Fig. 2d) were higher in gaps but(More)
