5 Uptake requires recognition proteins and free energy to prevent protein and provide membrane attachment folding 1. Energy source- ATP 2. Chaperones and mitochondrial- import stimulating factor (MSF) Heat shock proteins act as ‘folding and unfolding’ police Molecules that ferry molecules to various places within cells
