The Saccharomyces cerevisiae SUN family gene products, namely Sim1p, Uth1p, Nca3p and Sun4p, show a high degree of homology among themselves and are closely related to beta-glucosidase of Candida wickerhamii; however, these proteins do not bear such an activity. Dithiothreitol-treatment of intact cells induces the release of Uth1p, Sun4p and Sim1p from the cell wall. These highly glycosylated proteins are thus non-covalently bound to the cell wall. Two of them, Uth1p and Sun4p, have also been found in mitochondria. Sub-localization experiments show that Uth1p is inserted in the outer mitochondrial membrane and that Sun4p is preferentially a matrix protein. The physiological significance of this double localization is discussed in relation to the roles of these proteins in different cellular processes, namely mitochondrial biogenesis and cell septation.
