Arabidopsis peroxin 16 coexists at steady state in peroxisomes and endoplasmic reticulum.


Homologs of peroxin 16 genes (PEX16) have been identified only in Yarrowia lipolytica, humans (Homo sapiens), and Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana). The Arabidopsis gene (AtPEX16), previously reported as the SSE1 gene, codes for a predicted 42-kD membrane peroxin protein (AtPex16p). Lin et al. (Y. Lin, J.E. Cluette-Brown, H.M. Goodman [2004] Plant Physiol… (More)
