Disulfide formation in the mitochondrial intermembrane space (IMS) is an essential process. It is catalyzed by the disulfide relay machinery, which couples substrate import and oxidation. The machinery relies on the oxidoreductase and chaperone CHCHD4-Mia40. Here, we report on the driving force for IMS import and on a redox quality control mechanism. We demonstrate that unfolded reduced...

Systematic analysis of synergistic proteome modulations in a drug combination of cisplatin and MLN4924

Chemotherapeutic treatment regimens often take advantage of synergistic effects of drug combinations. Anticipating that synergistic effects on the cell biological level likely manifest on the proteome level, the analysis of proteome modulations represents an appropriate strategy to study drug combinations on a molecular level. More specifically, the detection of single proteins exhibiting...

Influenza A virus induces autophagosomal targeting of ribosomal proteins

Becker, Andrea C. ; Gannagé, Monique ; Giese, Sebastian ; Hu, Zehan ; Abou-Eid, Shadi ; Roubaty, Carole ; Paul, Petra ; Bühler, Lea ; Gretzmeier, Christine ; Dumit, Veronica I. ; Kaeser-Pebernard, Stéphanie ; Schwemmle, Martin ; Münz, Christian ; Dengjel, Jörn

Seasonal epidemics of influenza A virus are a major cause of severe illness and are of high socio-economic relevance. For the design of effective antiviral therapies, a detailed knowledge of pathways perturbed by virus infection is critical. We performed comprehensive expression and organellar proteomics experiments to study the cellular consequences of influenza A virus infection using three...
