Literature associating TIMM9 and deafness-dystonia-optic neuronopathy syndrome
Translocase of inner mitochondrial membrane 9 homolog (yeast); Mitochondrial intermembrane chaperone that participates in the import and insertion of multi-pass transmembrane proteins into the mitochondrial inner membrane. May also be required for the transfer of beta-barrel precursors from the TOM complex to the sorting and assembly machinery (SAM complex) of the outer membrane. Acts as a chaperone-like protein that protects the hydrophobic precursors from aggregation and guide them through the mitochondrial intermembrane space; Belongs to the small Tim family.
