The transport of ADP is done with the use of a transport protein called the ATP-ADP translocase, and as the name suggests, exchanges the ADP and ATP in a one-to-one manner across the inner mitochondrial membrane. ADP needs to be transported from the cytoplasm back into the mitochondrial matrix, where it can be turned back into ATP by oxidative phosphorylation and reused for further cellular activation. ADP and ATP are both highly negative, and would not be able to cross the membrane without the help of the ATP-ADP translocase. This transporter protein helps facilitate the movement of ADP into the mitochondrial matrix with the use of the high membrane potential that occurs due to the difference in energy states between the two different compounds that surround the membrane.
