How does the TOM complex mediate insertion of precursor proteins into the mitochondrial outer membrane?


A multisubunit translocase of the outer mitochondrial membrane (TOM complex) mediates both the import of mitochondrial precursor proteins into the internal compartments of the organelle and the insertion of proteins residing in the mitochondrial outer membrane. The proposed beta-barrel structure of Tom40, the pore-forming component of the translocase… (More)
