I never heard about it. Mitochondrial targeting sequences are mainly
structural consensus. You have a macintosh software that could help you
to predict or determine this kind of sequences.

Mitoprot is available at the following servers:

ENS:         ftp.ens.fr/pub/molbio
EMBL:        ftp.ebi.ac.uk/pub/software/mac
Stanford:    sumex-aim.stanford.edu/info-mac/sci
Indiana:     ftp.bio.indiana.edu/molbio/mac or /incoming

An an article will appear in CABIOS (1995) 11(4) next August.
