RGD ID: 1603048
Species: Homo sapiens
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: PAM16
Name: presequence translocase associated motor 16
Acc ID: GO:0030150
Term: protein import into mitochondrial matrix
Definition: The import of proteins across the outer and inner mitochondrial membranes into the matrix. Unfolded proteins enter the mitochondrial matrix with a chaperone protein; the information required to target the precursor protein from the cytosol to the mitochondrial matrix is contained within its N-terminal matrix-targeting sequence. Translocation of precursors to the matrix occurs at the rare sites where the outer and inner membranes are close together.
Definition Source(s): ISBN:0716731363
Note: Use of the qualifier "multiple interactions" designates that the annotated interaction is comprised of a complex set of reactions and/or regulatory events, possibly involving additional chemicals and/or gene products.
