Comments The yeast scERV1 gene was the first and best-characterized gene of a new family found in a large number of lower and higher eukaryotes and in the genome of some double-stranded DNA viruses. This gene encodes a small protein of 189 amino acids (22 ku) having a complex influence on different aspects of mitochondrial biogenesis and is essential for the survival of yeast. Human ALR showed 87 percent identity to rat ALR
