Abstract


The NAM1 nuclear gene was shown to control the stability and/or processing of mitochondrial transcripts of the cytochrome b, cytochrome oxidase subunit I and ATP synthase subunit VI genes [Groudinsky O., Bousquet I., Wallis M. G., Slonimski, P. P. & Dujardin G. (1993) Mol. Gen. Genet. 240, 419-427]. In order to better understand the mode of action of the NAM1 gene product, we have examined its intracellular fate. A fusion plasmid enabling bacterial over-expression of the corresponding protein-A-NAM1 cognate was constructed and subsequently employed as an antigen to raise polyclonal antibodies. These antibodies specifically recognise a 50-kDa protein which purifies along with the mitochondria and corresponds to NAM1p. Submitochondrial localisation experiments show that NAM1p is a soluble protein, located interior to the mitoplasts. Matricial location is a strong argument in favour of a direct interaction of NAM1p with particular mitochondrial transcripts and leads us to propose a model in which NAM1p could be an RNA-convoying protein stabilising and directing mitochondrial transcripts towards the inner face of the inner membrane where translation and assembly seem to occur.
