The mitochondrial inner and outer membranes are composed of a variety of integral membrane proteins, assembled into the membranes post-translationally. The small TIMs are a group of ~10 kDa proteins that function as chaperones to ferry imported membrane proteins across the mitochondrial intermembrane space. In yeast there are five small TIM proteins: Tim8, Tim9, Tim10, Tim12 and Tim13, with equivalent proteins reported in humans. Using hidden Markov models we find that many eukaryotes have… Expand
