    Quaternary structure:
    • Interacts with the TIM23 complex. Directly interacts with PAM16/MAGMAS; this interaction counteracts DNAJC15-dependent stimulation of HSPA9 ATPase activity. Associates with complex I of the mitochondrial electron transfer chain; this interaction may interfere with the formation of supercomplexes that facilitate the transfer of electrons between complexes (By similarity).
