Mitochondria are essential cell organelles containing more than 1,000 different proteins. My team studies the machineries that import and assemble mitochondrial proteins. We are characterizing an endoplasmic reticulum-mitochondria organizing network (ERMIONE) that forms a central platform for the biogenesis and architecture of the mitochondrial membranes.
Keywords: Protein sorting / mitochondria / molecular chaperones / biogenesis of cell organelles / assembly of protein complexes
