Family

Mitochondrial import inner membrane translocase subunit Tim44 (IPR017303)

Short name: Tim44

Family relationships

None.

Description

Tim44 is an essential component of the PAM complex, which is required for the translocation of transit peptide-containing proteins from the inner membrane into the mitochondrial matrix in an ATP-dependent manner. It recruits mitochondrial HSP70 to drive protein translocation into the matrix using ATP as an energy source [PMID: 10339406].
