Abstract


The preprotein translocase of the outer mitochondrial membrane (TOM complex) contains one essential subunit, the channel Tom40. The assembly pathway of the precursor of Tom40 involves the TOM complex and the sorting and assembly machinery (SAM complex) with the non-essential subunit Mas37. We have identified Sam50, the second essential protein of the mitochondrial outer membrane. Sam50 contains a beta-barrel domain conserved from bacteria to man and is a subunit of the SAM complex. Yeast mutants of Sam50 are defective in the assembly pathways of Tom40 and the abundant outer membrane protein porin, while the import of matrix proteins is not affected. Thus the protein sorting and assembly machinery of the mitochondrial outer membrane involves an essential, conserved protein.
