Target

  • Function
    Required for the import and folding of small cysteine-containing proteins (small Tim) in the mitochondrial intermembrane space (IMS). Probably acts by forming a redox cycle with GFER/ERV1 that involves a disulfide relay system. Precursor proteins to be imported into the IMS are translocated in their reduced form into the mitochondria. The oxidized form of MIA40 forms a transient intermolecular disulfide bridge with the reduced precursor protein, resulting in oxidation of the precursor protein that now contains an intramolecular disulfide bond and is able to undergo folding in the IMS.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in all tissues tested, suggesting an ubiquitous expression.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 CHCH domain.
  • Domain
    The CHCH domain contains a conserved twin Cys-X(9)-Cys motif which is required for import and stability of MIA40 in mitochondria.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Forms intrachain disulfide bridges, but exists in different redox states.
  • Cellular localization
    Mitochondrion intermembrane space.
