Neurospora alternative splicing

mitochondriaA quick link to a Neurospora paper in Genetics today entitled “Alternative Splicing Gives Rise to Different Isoforms of the Neurospora crassa Tob55 Protein That Vary in Their Ability to Insert ß-Barrel Proteins Into the Outer Mitochondrial Membrane”. The authors investigated alternative splicing of a gene found in the TOB complex on the outside of the mitochondria. They found reduced growth rate when a strain expressed only the the longest form of three isoforms and confirmed the protein expression of the three isoforms with mass spec.
