Formation of peroxisomes from peroxisomal ghosts in a peroxisome-deficient mammalian cell mutant upon complementation by protein microinjection.


Most mammalian cell strains genetically deficient in peroxisome biogenesis have abnormal membrane structures called ghosts, containing integral peroxisomal membrane protein, PMP70, but lacking the peroxisomal matrix proteins. Upon genetic complementation, these mutants regain the ability of peroxisome biogenesis. It is postulated that, in this process, the… (More)
