Mitochondrially synthesized protein subunits of the yeast mitochondrial adenosine triphosphatase Academic Article uri icon


  • Evidence is presented that a mitochondrial translation product (Mr, 32,000) previously thought to be a subunit of the membrane sector of the yeast mitochondrial ATPase is a contaminant, consisting of subunit II of the cytochrome oxidase complex and cytochrome b apoprotein. Our data suggest that only two subunits (Mr, 7600 and 20,000) of the mitochondrial ATPase are synthesized in the mitochondria.
