Glycosylation is an important mechanism for modulating the physicochemical and biological properties of proteins in a stage- and tissue-specific manner. The enzymology of this process is just beginning to be understood. Here we present the molecular analysis of mas-1 (mannosidase-1), a Drosophila gene with significant homologies to mammalian and(More)
We here report the complete nucleotide sequence of the 47.9 kb mitochondrial (mt) genome from the obligate aerobic yeast Yarrowia lipolytica. It encodes, all on the same strand, seven subunits of NADH: ubiquinone oxidoreductase (ND1-6, ND4L), apocytochrome b (COB), three subunits of cytochrome oxidase (COX1, 2, 3), three subunits of ATP synthetase (ATP6, 8(More)
Mitochondrial complex I, the largest and most complicated proton pump of the respiratory chain, links the electron transfer from NADH to ubiquinone to the pumping of four protons from the matrix into the intermembrane space. In humans, defects in complex I are involved in a wide range of degenerative disorders. Recent progress in the X-ray structural(More)
