Abstract

Yeast peroxisomes harbour enzymes involved in the metabolism of specific growth substrates. Sequestration of these enzymes increases the efficiency of such pathways. Currently, 16 genes involved in peroxisome biogenesis have been identified, and analysis of their products suggests novel mechanisms for organelle assembly and protein translocation.
