Mitochondrial import receptor subunit TOM7 (IPR012621)

Short name: Tom7

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



This family consists of mitochondrial import receptor subunit TOM7. TOM7 forms part of the translocase of the outer mitochondrial membrane (TOM) complex and it appears to function as a modulator of the dynamics of the mitochondrial protein transport machinery by promoting the dissociation of subunits of the outer membrane translocase [PMID: 9642296].
