Peroxisomes are single membrane-delimited subcellular organelles that carry out numerous vital metabolic reactions in nearly all eukaryotes. Peroxisomes alter their morphology, abundance, and enzymatic constituents in response to environmental cues, yet little is known about the underlying mechanisms. In this work, we investigated the regulatory role of light in peroxisome proliferation in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana). We provide evidence that light induces proliferation of peroxisomes in… CONTINUE READING
