Human mitochondria contain approximately 1500 different proteins, most of which (99%) are synthesized on cytosolic ribosomes, and subsequently imported to their functional destination in the mitochondrial subcompartments by specific targeting signals. Presequence is a sorting signal in the form of an N-terminal extension that directs the import of nearly all mitochondrial matrix protein...
Thiol-dependent peroxidases, as peroxiredoxins, play a role in the response of oxidative stress due to reactive oxygen species (ROS) accumulation. There are five isoforms of peroxiredoxins in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, localized in different cellular compartments. Prx1p is a mitochondrial isoform and plays an important role in the elimination of hydrogen peroxide produced during the elec...
