Cyclophilin-D (Cyp-D) is a peptidyl prolyl isomerase which catalyzes the cis-trans isomerization of peptidyl prolyl bonds and thereby regulates conformational changes of target proteins. Cyp-D is the only cyclophilin res- ident in mitochondria, and until recently it was best known for its effect on the mitochondrial permeability transi- tion pore. We recently discovered that Cyp-D interacts with two of the three mitochondrial transcription factors (i.e., TFB1M and TFB2M but not TFAM) and subsequ...
