Abstract


The ADP/ATP carrier (AAC) that facilitates the translocation of ATP made in mitochondria is inserted at the inner mitochondrial membrane by the TIM10-TIM22 protein import system. Here we addressed the state of the AAC precursor during insertion (stage IV of import) and identified residues of the carrier important for dimerization. By a combination of (i) import of a mix of His-tagged and untagged versions of AAC either 35S-labeled or unlabeled, (ii) import of a tandem covalent dimer AAC into wild-type mitochondria, and (iii) import of monomeric AAC into mitochondria expressing only the tandem covalent dimer AAC, we found that the stage IV intermediate is a monomer, and this stage is probably the rate-limiting step of insertion in the membrane. Subsequent dimerization occurs extremely rapidly (within less than a minute). The incoming monomer dimerizes with monomeric endogenous AAC suggesting that the AAC dimer is very dynamic. Conserved Cys residues were found not to affect insertion significantly, but they are crucial for the dimerization process to obtain a functional carrier.
