Most mitochondrial proteins are imported into mitochondria through transmembrane channels composed largely, and perhaps exclusively, of proteins. We have determined the effective internal diameter of the protein import channel in the mitochondrial outer membrane to be between 20 A and 26 A during translocation. The diameter of the import channel in the inner membrane is smaller than the diameter of the outer membrane import channel. These results were obtained by measuring the effect of rigid steric bulk introduced into precursor proteins on import.
