10. You have identified a mutant form of the TOM complex in a particular cell type. This mutant form of the TOM complex is identical in structure and function to the wild-type (normal) TOM protein complex EXCEPT that it is not gated, remaining OPEN at all times (it never closes). Which of the following might you expect to take place in cells that have the mutant TOM complex (compared to cells that have the wild-type TOM)? (a) Protein import into the mitochondrial matrix will be faster and more favourable. (b) Protein import into the mitochondrial matrix will be slower and less favourable. (c) The cell will have a better ability to produce ATP, which depends on the H+ gradient within the mitochondrial inner membrane. (d) The binding of proteins that are destined for the mitochondria to HSP70 in the cytosol will be prevented. (e) None of the above.
