According to Poole et al. (1970, J. Cell Biol. 45:408-415), newly synthesized peroxisomal proteins are incorporated uniformly into peroxisomes (PO) of different size classes, suggesting that rat hepatic PO form a homogeneous population. There is however increasing cytochemical and biochemical evidence that PO in rat liver are heterogenous, undergoing significant modulations in shape and size in process of PO morphogenesis (Yamamoto and Fahimi, 1987. J. Cell Biol. 105:713-722). In the present… CONTINUE READING
