Peroxisome biogenesis requires that proteins be transported from their site of synthesis in the cytoplasm to their final location in the peroxisome matrix or membrane. Glyoxysomes are a class of peroxisomes found primarily in germinating seedlings and are involved in mobilizing fatty acids via the glyoxylate cycle and the beta-oxidation pathway. We have used an in vitro assay to study the mechanism(s) of import of proteins into glyoxysomes. Results from this assay indicate that the transport… CONTINUE READING
