The abundance of peroxisomes within a cell is rapidly controlled depending on environmental changes and physiological conditions. It is well established that phthalate esters can cause a marked proliferation of peroxisomes (Yokota, 1986). Following induction of peroxisomes by a 2-week treatment with phthalate esters in mouse livers, peroxisomal degradation… CONTINUE READING
