Abstract

Peroxisomes are highly adaptable organelles that carry out oxidative reactions. Distinct cellular machineries act together to coordinate peroxisome formation, growth, division, inheritance, turnover, movement and function. Soluble and membrane-associated components of these machineries form complex networks of physical and functional interactions that provide supramolecular control of the precise dynamics of peroxisome biogenesis.
