Moreno J, Buie K, Price R, Piva M. Ccm1p/Ygr150cp, a pentatricopeptide repeat protein, is essential to remove the fourth intron of both COB and COX1 pre-mRNAs in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Curr Genet. 2009;55:475-84 pubmed publisher
..Accordingly, we designate YGR150C as CCM1 (COB and COX1 mRNA maturation). This report provides the first evidence of PPR protein involvement in the specific removal of group I introns in mitochondria of S. cerevisiae. ..

..This approach can be also applied for further studies on 15S rRNA stability and mitoribosome assembly. ..
