A Mitochondrial Protein Essential for Interaction Between Cytochromes c1 and c: The Hinge Protein

  • Chong H. Kim

Abstract

This chapter is written to summarize the studies on a mitochondrial protein, named the hinge protein, which was recognized only a few years ago (1) and seems to have a certain role in the respiratory chain system of mammalian mitochondrial inner membrane. Although the genuine function of this protein has not been yet completely understood, there are some accumulated knowledge about the structure and function of this protein from the last few years. This review is based on isolation methods and biochemical and physicochemical studies of this protein.
