Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the metabolite carriers in mitochondria. For many metabolic processes in the cell a concerted function of both the cytosolic and the mitochondrial compartment is necessary. Because of the presence of non-specific pore proteins, the outer mitochondrial membrane is permeable to small molecules, such as the metabolites discussed in this chapter. The inner mitochondrial membrane, on the other hand, is impermeable to most solutes. Thus, the presence of… CONTINUE READING
