Literature associating TIMM8B and deafness-dystonia-optic neuronopathy syndrome
Translocase of inner mitochondrial membrane 8 homolog B (yeast); Probable mitochondrial intermembrane chaperone that participates in the import and insertion of some multi-pass transmembrane proteins into the mitochondrial inner membrane. Also 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 (By similarity).
Synonyms: TIMM8B, TIMM8Bp, hTIMM8B, E9PIR3, G3XAN8 ...
