In the cytosol of bacteria and eukaryotes, membrane targeting of ribosomes that synthesize membrane proteins is achieved by signal recognition particles and their cognate receptors. In contrast, in mitochondria the strong genome reduction and the loss of genes for hydrophilic proteins allowed the development of ribosome-binding sites on membrane proteins which finally made the existence of an SRP-mediated system dispensable
