Members of the heat shock protein 70 (Hsp70) family mediate import, folding, assembly and degradation of proteins in mitochondria. The function of Hsp70 proteins is dependent on their interaction with cofactors, including members of the DnaJ protein family. The mitochondrial DnaJ homolog, Mdj1p, has been shown to cooperate with the major mitochondrial Hsp70, mt-Hsp70. We describe the identification of a second mitochondrial DnaJ homolog, Mdj2p, in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The protein… CONTINUE READING
