Modified precursor proteins as tools to study protein import into mitochondria.

Abstract

The organization of cells in different compartments demands specific mechanisms to supply each organelle with its proper subset of proteins. While it is already known that presequences in precursor proteins contain the information which guides these proteins to their correct organelle, very little is known about the mechanism of the transmembrane movement… (More)
