Previous GeneCards Identifiers for TIMM9 Gene
TIMM9 belongs to a family of evolutionarily conserved proteins that are organized in heterooligomeric complexes in the mitochondrial intermembrane space. These proteins mediate the import and insertion of hydrophobic membrane proteins into the mitochondrial inner membrane.[supplied by OMIM, Apr 2004]
GeneCards Summary for TIMM9 Gene
TIMM9 (Translocase Of Inner Mitochondrial Membrane 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification and Mitochondrial protein import. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and chaperone binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TIMM9 Gene
Mitochondrial intermembrane chaperone that participates in the import and insertion of multi-pass transmembrane proteins into the mitochondrial inner membrane. May also be required for the transfer of beta-barrel precursors from the TOM complex to the sorting and assembly machinery (SAM complex) of the outer membrane. Acts as a chaperone-like protein that protects the hydrophobic precursors from aggregation and guide them through the mitochondrial intermembrane space.
