Presequence binding factor-dependent and -independent import of proteins into mitochondria.

Abstract

A cytosolic protein factor(s) is involved in the import of precursor proteins into mitochondria. PBF (presequence binding factor) is a protein factor which binds to the precursor form (pOTC) of rat ornithine carbamoyltransferase (OTC) but not to the mature OTC, and is required for the mitochondrial import of pOTC. The precursors for aspartate… (More)
