Faculty mentor: Markus Babst

Slm1 is know as a protein associates with the plasma membrane. And yet, its role in cellular respiration has never been revealed. In the research, we reveals an additional location to which Slm1 localizes to–the mitochondria. In addition, we report mitochondrial fragmentation to occur when Slm1 localizes to mitochondria. Exact condition and parts of Slm1 essential to causing mitochondrial fragmentation is also identified. This gives insights to potential role of Slm1 in mitochondrial context.
