Researchers demonstrate how a molecular barrel structure serves various functions in the mitochondria

Freiburg researchers have discovered that the molecular barrel protein Mdm10 can carry out various functions for the development and maintenance of mitochondrial structure by binding to protein machines. Mitochondria are the cell's powerhouses, for instance producing the energy for cell metabolism. The team led by Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Pfanner and Dr. Thomas Becker from the University of Freiburg's Institute of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology published the findings together with further colleagues in the journal Nature Communications.
