The Complex Life Of Plants: Mitochondrial Translocase Complexes

Mitochondria are powerhouse organelles in the cell. They are mainly responsible for generating ATP, a high-energy molecule used in various cellular activities. The ATP production occurs in the respiration process occurred inside its tiny compartments. However, most proteins that build the mitochondria and required for its activity are not synthesized within, but rather by the protein-synthesizing machinery called ribosomes located in the cytoplasm, just as the majority of cell proteins. The question is, how do proteins, which are required to...
