Family

Mitochondrial outer membrane translocase complex, subunit Tom70 (IPR005687)

Short name: Tom70

Family relationships

None.

Description

The mitochondrial protein translocase (MPT) family, which brings nuclearly encoded preproteins into mitochondria, is very complex with 19 currently identified protein constituents. These proteins include several chaperone proteins, four proteins of the outer membrane translocase (Tom) import receptor, five proteins of the Tom channel complex, five proteins of the inner membrane translocase (Tim) and three "motor" proteins. This family is specific for the Tom70 proteins.
