DGS1 is an outer membrane component of MICOS that plays a role in lipid homeostasis in plant organelles, organelle biogenesis, and morphology. Mitochondrial and plastid biogenesis requires the biosynthesis and assembly of proteins, nucleic acids, and lipids. In Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana), the mitochondrial outer membrane protein DGD1 SUPPRESSOR1 (DGS1) is part of a large multi-subunit protein complex that contains the mitochondrial contact site and cristae organizing system 60-kD…

FRIENDLY (FMT) is an RNA binding protein associated with cytosolic ribosomes at the mitochondrial surface
The Arabidopsis thaliana Friendly (FMT) protein is shown to be a cytosolic RNA binding protein that associates with cytOSolic ribosomes at the surface of mitochondria, indicating that FMT participates in the localization of mRNAs and their translation at thesurface of mitochondia.
The draft nuclear genome sequence and predicted mitochondrial proteome of Andalucia godoyi, a protist with the most gene-rich and bacteria-like mitochondrial genome
The draft nuclear genome sequence for the jakobid Andalucia godoyi is assembled and a comprehensive in silico approach is used to infer the nucleus-encoded portion of the mitochondrial proteome of this protist, identifying 864 candidate mitochondrial proteins.


Mutation of a mitochondrial outer membrane protein affects chloroplast lipid biosynthesis.
Hydrogen peroxide and treatments producing reactive oxygen also activate the alternative pathway in the wild-type, which likely implicate the production of reactive oxygen in the regulation of the alternative galactoglycerolipid pathway in plants.
Functional Definition of Outer Membrane Proteins Involved in Preprotein Import into Mitochondria[W]
It is proposed that all three components directly interact with precursor proteins to participate in early stages of mitochondrial protein import.
Protein import into plant mitochondria: signals, machinery, processing, and regulation.
Plants provide a valuable model system to study the various regulatory processes associated with protein import and mitochondrial biogenesis, including distinct protein import receptors in plants, different mechanistic operation of the intermembrane protein import system, the location and activity of peptidases.
Phosphate Regulation of Lipid Biosynthesis in Arabidopsis Is Independent of the Mitochondrial Outer Membrane DGS1 Complex1[OA]
Analysis presented here shows that the DGS1 protein is a component of a large protein complex, which explains the previously observed dominant negative phenotype following the expression of the dgs1-1 allele.
Dnm1p Gtpase-Mediated Mitochondrial Fission Is a Multi-Step Process Requiring the Novel Integral Membrane Component Fis1p
It is proposed that mitochondrial fission in yeast is a multi-step process, and that membrane-bound Fis1p is required for the proper assembly, membrane distribution, and function of Dnm1p-containing complexes during fission.
The translocator maintenance protein Tam41 is required for mitochondrial cardiolipin biosynthesis
It is demonstrated that the assembly of proteins imported by the carrier translocase, TIM22 complex, is even more strongly affected by the lack ofTam41, and the phenotype of Tam41-deficient mitochondria thus resembles that of mitochondria lacking cardiolipin.
Dual Location of the Mitochondrial Preprotein Transporters B14.7 and Tim23-2 in Complex I and the TIM17:23 Complex in Arabidopsis Links Mitochondrial Activity and Biogenesis[C][W][OA]
Analysis of the Tim23-2–overexpressing plants through global quantitation of transcript abundance and in-organelle protein synthesis assays revealed widespread alterations in transcript abundance of genes encoding mitochondrial proteins and altered rates of mitochondrial protein translation, indicating a pivotal relationship between the machinery of mitochondrial biogenesis and mitochondrial function.
Cardiolipin-Mediated Mitochondrial Dynamics and Stress Response in Arabidopsis[C][W]
This work reveals aspects of the properties and function of the phospholipid cardiolipin (CL) and uncovered conserved and plant-specific aspects of CL biology in mitochondrial dynamics and the organism response to environmental stresses.
