ATP11 (IPR010591)

Short name: ATP11

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



This family consists of several eukaryotic ATP11 proteins. The expression of functional F1-ATPase requires two proteins which are encoded by the ATP11 and ATP12 genes [PMID: 1532796]. Atp11p is a molecular chaperone of the mitochondrial matrix that participates in the biogenesis pathway to form F1, which is the catalytic unit of ATP synthase. It binds to the free beta subunits of F1, which prevents the beta subunit from associating with itself in non-productive complex. It also allows for the formation of a (alpha beta)3 hexamer [PMID: 12829692].
