AAC2, ANC2, ADP/ATP carrier protein PET9, OP1, L000000004, L000001386, L000004346, YBL030C
Major ADP/ATP carrier of the mitochondrial inner membrane; exchanges cytosolic ADP for mitochondrially synthesized ATP; also imports heme and ATP; phosphorylated; required for viability in many lab strains that carry a sal1 mutation; PET9 has a paralog, AAC3, that arose from the whole genome duplication

Synthetic Lethality

A genetic interaction is inferred when mutations or deletions in separate genes, each of which alone causes a minimal phenotype, result in lethality when combined in the same cell under a given condition.


Synthetic lethal interaction between the pel1 and op1 mutations in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Dzugasova V, Subik J

The Saccharomyces cerevisiae mutant strain containing the op1 mutation affecting the function of a mitochondrial ATP/ADP translocator has been crossed to the pel1 and crd1 mutants deficient in the biosynthesis of mitochondrial phosphatidylglycerol (PG) and cardiolipin (CL). Using tetrad analysis of diploids issued from corresponding crosses a synthetic lethal interaction has been observed between the op1 and pel1 mutations resulting ... [more]
