New insights on mitochondrial biogenesis

Researchers from the IFIB provide new insights to the biogenesis of mitochondrial outer membrane proteins. They demonstrate that such proteins can follow various routes where both proteinaceous elements and membrane behaviour regulate the efficiency and specificity of this process.

The study was published in April 2022 in the Journal of Cell Biology.
