Promotion of mitochondrial membrane complex assembly by a proteolytically inactive yeast Lon.

Afg3p and Rca1p are adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-dependent metalloproteases in yeast mitochondria. Cells lacking both proteins exhibit defects in respiration-dependent growth, degradation of mitochondrially synthesized proteins, and assembly of inner-membrane complexes. Defects in growth and protein assembly, but not in degradation, were suppressed by overproduction of yeast mitochondrial Lon, an ATP-dependent serine protease. Suppression by Lon was enhanced by inactivation of the proteolytic site and was prevented by mutation of the ATP-binding site. It is suggested that the mitochondrial proteases Lon, Afg3p, and Rca1p can also serve a chaperone-like function in the assembly of mitochondrial protein complexes.[1]
