Mss51p promotes mitochondrial Cox1p synthesis and interacts with newly synthesized Cox1p
The post‐transcriptional role of Mss51p in mitochondrial gene expression is of great interest since MSS51 mutations suppress the respiratory defect caused by shy1 mutations. SHY1 is a SaccharomycesExpand

A mitochondrial protease with two catalytic subunits of nonoverlapping specificities.
The mitochondrial inner membrane protease is required for the maturation of mitochondrial proteins that are delivered to the intermembrane space. In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, this proteaseExpand

Cox18p is required for export of the mitochondrially encoded Saccharomyces cerevisiae Cox2p C-tail and interacts with Pnt1p and Mss2p in the inner membrane.
The amino- and carboxy-terminal domains of mitochondrially encoded cytochrome c oxidase subunit II (Cox2p) are translocated out of the matrix to the intermembrane space. We have carried out a geneticExpand

Inventory control: cytochrome c oxidase assembly regulates mitochondrial translation
Mitochondria maintain genome and translation machinery to synthesize a small subset of subunits of the oxidative phosphorylation system. To build up functional enzymes, these organellar gene productsExpand

Expression of a recoded nuclear gene inserted into yeast mitochondrial DNA is limited by mRNA-specific translational activation.
Genetic code differences prevent expression of nuclear genes within Saccharomyces cerevisiae mitochondria. To bridge this gap a synthetic gene, ARG8m, designed to specify an arginine biosyntheticExpand

Escape of DNA from mitochondria to the nucleus in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
THE migration of genetic information from ancestral prokaryotic endosymbionts into eukaryotic nuclei is thought to have had an important role in the evolution of mitochondria and chloroplasts1–6.Expand

Nuclear mutations in Saccharomyces cerevisiae that affect the escape of DNA from mitochondria to the nucleus.
We have inserted a yeast nuclear DNA fragment bearing the TRP1 gene and its associated origin of DNA replication, ARS1, into the functional mitochondrial chromosome of a strain carrying a chromosomalExpand

Interactions among COX1, COX2, and COX3 mRNA-specific translational activator proteins on the inner surface of the mitochondrial inner membrane of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
The core of the cytochrome c oxidase complex is composed of its three largest subunits, Cox1p, Cox2p, and Cox3p, which are encoded in mitochondrial DNA of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and inserted intoExpand

To study in vivo the export of mitochondrially synthesized protein from the matrix to the intermembrane space, we have fused a synthetic mitochondrial gene, ARG8m, to the Saccharomyces cerevisiaeExpand

Analysis and manipulation of yeast mitochondrial genes.
Publisher Summary This chapter describes the analysis and manipulation of yeast mitochondrial genes. In assessing the effects of mitochondrial (or nuclear) mutations on the expression of individualExpand
