  1. Mitochondrial carrier protein biogenesis: role of the chaperones Hsc70 and Hsp90. Zara, V., Ferramosca, A., Robitaille-Foucher, P., Palmieri, F., Young, J.C. Biochem. J. (2009) [Pubmed]
  2. Biogenesis of the yeast cytochrome bc1 complex. Zara, V., Conte, L., Trumpower, B.L. Biochim. Biophys. Acta (2009) [Pubmed]
  3. Evidence that the assembly of the yeast cytochrome bc1 complex involves the formation of a large core structure in the inner mitochondrial membrane. Zara, V., Conte, L., Trumpower, B.L. FEBS J. (2009) [Pubmed]
  4. Biogenesis of yeast dicarboxylate carrier: the carrier signature facilitates translocation across the mitochondrial outer membrane. Zara, V., Ferramosca, A., Capobianco, L., Baltz, K.M., Randel, O., Rassow, J., Palmieri, F., Papatheodorou, P. J. Cell. Sci. (2007) [Pubmed]
  5. Biogenesis of eel liver citrate carrier (CIC): negative charges can substitute for positive charges in the presequence. Zara, V., Dolce, V., Capobianco, L., Ferramosca, A., Papatheodorou, P., Rassow, J., Palmieri, F. J. Mol. Biol. (2007) [Pubmed]
  6. Import of rat mitochondrial citrate carrier (CIC) at increasing salt concentrations promotes presequence binding to import receptor Tom20 and inhibits membrane translocation. Zara, V., Ferramosca, A., Papatheodorou, P., Palmieri, F., Rassow, J. J. Cell. Sci. (2005) [Pubmed]
  7. Further insights into the assembly of the yeast cytochrome bc1 complex based on analysis of single and double deletion mutants lacking supernumerary subunits and cytochrome b. Zara, V., Palmisano, I., Conte, L., Trumpower, B.L. Eur. J. Biochem. (2004) [Pubmed]
  8. Biogenesis of rat mitochondrial citrate carrier (CIC): the N-terminal presequence facilitates the solubility of the preprotein but does not act as a targeting signal. Zara, V., Ferramosca, A., Palmisano, I., Palmieri, F., Rassow, J. J. Mol. Biol. (2003) [Pubmed]
