TIM22 mitochondrial inner membrane twin-pore carrier translocase complex Overview

GO Annotations consist of four mandatory components: a gene product, a term from one of the three Gene Ontology (GO) controlled vocabularies (Molecular Function, Biological Process, and Cellular Component), a reference, and an evidence code.

Mediates the insertion and lateral release of multi-spanning membrane precursor proteins into the mitochondrial inner membrane in a membrane potential-dependent manner following translocation into the mitochondrion. Most mitochondrial proteins are synthesized in the cytosol, imported into mitochondria, sorted to one of the four submitochondrial compartments, where they function, and attain their functional native conformation, which is often facilitated by assembly into the membrane or a multiprotein complex.
GO Slim Terms

The yeast GO Slim terms are higher level terms that best represent the major S. cerevisiae biological processes, functions, and cellular components. The GO Slim terms listed here are the broader parent terms for the specific terms to which this gene product is annotated, and thus represent the more general processes, functions, and components in which it is involved.
