The proteins performing the activity of the inner membrane anion channel (IMAC) and its plant counterpart (PIMAC) are still unknown. Lurin et al. (Biochem J 348: 291-295, 2000) indicated that a chloride channel (CLC) protein corresponds to PIMAC activity in tobacco seedling mitochondria. In this study, we investigated: (i) the presence of a CLC protein in… CONTINUE READING
