High impact information on MTO1

  • MTO1 codes for a mitochondrial protein required for respiration in paromomycin-resistant mutants of Saccharomyces cerevisiae [1].
  • Mutations in MTO1 express a respiratory defect only in the context of a mitochondrial genome with a paromomycin-resistance allele [1].
  • In a paromomycin-resistant background, mss1 and mto1 mutants are inefficient in processing the mitochondrial COX1 transcript for subunit 1 of cytochrome oxidase [1].
  • The respiratory defective phenotype of mto1 and mss1 mutants is not seen in a paromomycin-sensitive genetic background [1].
  • The mouse MTO1 gene containing 12 exons encodes a 669-residue protein with a strong homology to the MTO1-like proteins of bacteria and yeast, related to tRNA modification [2].
