P19414 (Uniprot) ACON_YEAST ACO1 Aconitate hydratase, mitochondrial yeast Yes
Uniprot: Catalyzes the isomerization of citrate to isocitrate via cis-aconitate, a step in the citric acid cycle. Can also provide minor contributions to the reversible dehydration of (R)-homocitrate to cis-homoaconitate, a step in the alpha-aminoadipate pathway for lysine biosynthesis. Plays also an essential role in mtDNA maintenance. May directly protect mtDNA from accumulation of point mutations and ssDNA breaks as a component of mitochondrial nucleoids, or by preventing accumulation of iron citrate thereby alleviating its detrimental effects in mitochondria. more..

Function 1: Aconitase.

Function 2: Maintenance of mitochondrial DNA (independent of its catalytic activity).
