We describe an unusual mechanism for organelle division. In the yeast Yarrowia lipolytica, only mature peroxisomes contain the complete set of matrix proteins. These mature peroxisomes assemble from several immature peroxisomal vesicles in a multistep pathway. The stepwise import of distinct subsets of matrix proteins into different immature intermediates(More)
The ACO3 gene, which encodes one of the acyl-CoA oxidase isoenzymes, was isolated from the alkane-utilizing yeast Yarrowia lipolytica as a 10 kb genomic fragment. It was sequenced and found to encode a 701-amino acid protein very similar to other ACOs, 67.5% identical to Y. lipolytica Aco1p and about 40% identical to S. cerevisiae Pox1p. Haploid strains(More)
