Abstract: The multisubunit mitochondrial contact site and cristae organizing system (MICOS) plays an important role in cristae junction formation. Tarasenko et al. show that the MICOS component Mic60 actively bends membranes and that this activity is evolutionarily conserved and necessary for cristae structure.
