Translocation of proteins into mitochondria.

  title={Translocation of proteins into mitochondria.},
  author={Walter Neupert and Johannes M Herrmann},
  journal={Annual review of biochemistry},
About 10% to 15% of the nuclear genes of eukaryotic organisms encode mitochondrial proteins. These proteins are synthesized in the cytosol and recognized by receptors on the surface of mitochondria. Translocases in the outer and inner membrane of mitochondria mediate the import and intramitochondrial sorting of these proteins; ATP and the membrane potential are used as energy sources. Chaperones and auxiliary factors assist in the folding and assembly of mitochondrial proteins into their native… CONTINUE READING
