Conference paper
Part of the Colloquium der Gesellschaft für Biologische Chemie 15.–17. April 1971 in Mosbach/Baden book series (MOSBACH, volume 22)


In addition to the various electron carriers required in electron transport and the ATP synthetase system participating in oxidative phosphorylation of ADP, the inner mitochondrial membrane contains a number of specific permeases or transport systems which make possible metabolic interplay between the mitochondrial matrix and the surrounding cytoplasm. In this paper the general characteristics of these permease systems will be outlined first. Then our recent work on the properties of the specific carrier involved in mitochondrial Ca2+ transport will be described in more detail.
