Herrmann JM and Neupert W (2000) What fuels polypeptide translocation? An energetical view on mitochondrial protein sorting. Biochim Biophys Acta 1459(2-3):331-8
Abstract: Protein sorting into mitochondria is achieved by the concerted action of at least four translocation complexes. Vectorial transport of polypeptide chains by these complexes requires different driving forces. In particular, Deltapsi, matrix adenosine triphosphate and the free energy of the binding to other protein components are used in series to achieve sorting of proteins to the various mitochondrial subcompartments. The processes providing the translocation energy are presented in this review and their impact for protein sorting into and within mitochondria is discussed.
