Abstract

A major current issue in studies of peroxisome biogenesis is how proteins are imported into the organelle or inserted into its membrane. Recent studies indicate that these two processes use independent pathways. Both appear to have unexpected properties. Matrix proteins can be imported in an oligomeric form which might be facilitated by cycling receptors, whereas insertion of at least some peroxisomal membrane proteins seems to involve the endoplasmic reticulum.
