High impact information on COX9

  • One class contains three complementation groups whose strains carry mutations in the COX4, COX5a, or COX9 genes [1].
  • From the nucleotide sequence of COX9, we deduce that subunit VIIa is derived from a precursor that is 59 amino acids in length (Mr = 6963) [2].
  • COX9 exists as a single copy in the haploid genome of S. cerevisiae and produces one major transcript [2].
  • Characterization of COX9, the nuclear gene encoding the yeast mitochondrial protein cytochrome c oxidase subunit VIIa. Subunit VIIa lacks a leader peptide and is an essential component of the holoenzyme [2].
