In vivo zippering of inner and outer mitochondrial membranes by a stable translocation intermediate.


It was previously assumed that the import of cytoplasmically synthesized precursor proteins into mitochondria occurs through a single structure spanning both outer and inner membranes at contact sites. Based on recent findings, however, the two membranes appear to contain independent translocation elements that reversibly cooperate during protein import… (More)
