. TIMM10 belongs to a family of evolutionarily conserved proteins that are organized in heterooligomeric complexes in the mitochondrial intermembrane space. These proteins mediate the import and insertion of Hydrophobe, hydrophobic membrane proteins into the Inner mitochondrial membrane, mitochondrial inner membrane.[supplied by OMIM]
