I'm confused how ATP is used in relation to the protein and the TIM complex. Is ATP used as energy to bind the presequence to TIM, or is it used to remove the protein from TIM?

ATP is required for the mitochondrial Hsp70 to "rachet" the protein through Tim into the matrix,thus facilitating translocation of the protein.
