Mitochondria fulfill central functions in cellular energetics, metabolism, and signaling. The outer membrane translocator complex (the TOM complex) imports most mitochondrial proteins, and TOMM40 is the key subunit of the complex, the pore through which the vast majority of imported proteins must pass. TOMM40 possesses chaperone-like properties, which helps expedite movement of the pre-proteins through the channel. TOM cooperates with the TIM23 (Translocase of the Inner Membrane 23) complexes to import matrix-targeted proteins. TOMM40 is implicated in many neurodegenerative diseases; reduced TOMM40 mRNA expression in Alzheimer’s disease patients was shown to correlate with cognitive decline.Product Details
