fid = fopen('YourMatFile.mat', 'r') ;
YourVariable = fread(fid, '*uint8').' ;
fclose(fid) ;
YourVariable is now a row vector of bytes that make up the mat file.
This kind of thing can be useful if you need to transmit a mat file over wireless or Ethernet, but otherwise has limited use.
.... But perhaps the answer you were looking for was just
YourVariable = load('YourMatFile.mat');

@Kieran Graham: the recommended approach is to simply load into an output variable
S = load(...);
All of your variables will be fields in the scalar structure S, and are trivial to access.
