Targeting signals in peroxisomal membrane proteins.


Peroxisomal membrane proteins (PMPs) are encoded by the nuclear genome and translated on cytoplasmic ribosomes. Newly synthesized PMPs can be targeted directly from the cytoplasm to peroxisomes or travel to peroxisomes via the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). The mechanisms responsible for the targeting of these proteins to the peroxisomal membrane are still… (More)
