    basic FUNCTION
  • is essential for uniporter current and additionally bridges the calcium-sensing role of MICU1 and MICU2 with the calcium-conducting role of MCU
  • its known MCU-activating function is mediated by the interaction of transmembrane helices from both proteins
  • identified as a uniporter subunit absolutely required for Ca2+ permeation
  • its second function is to maintain tight MICU1, MICU2 regulation of the MCU pore, a role that requires SMDT1 to bind MICU1 using its conserved C-terminal polyaspartate tail

    protein
  • was required for the interaction of MCU with MICU1 and MICU2
  • MICU1 is a key regulator of the mitochondrial Ca(2+) uniporter (MCU) that together with the essential MCU regulator (SMDT1) forms the mitochondrial Ca(2+) channel
  • MCU channel activity is governed by matrix Ca(2+) concentration through SMDT1
  • SMDT1-dependent regulation of MCU channel activity requires intermembrane space-localized MICU1, MICU2, and cytoplasmic Ca(2+)
  • MCUR1 binds to MCU and SMDT1 and function as a scaffold factor
