Pexophagy and peroxisomal protein turnover in plants
Peroxisomes are dynamic, vital organelles that sequester a variety of oxidative reactions and their toxic byproducts from the remainder of the cell. The oxidative nature of peroxisomal metabolism predisposes the organelle ...
The Roles of β-Oxidation and Cofactor Homeostasis in Peroxisome Distribution and Function in Arabidopsis thaliana
Key steps of essential metabolic pathways are housed in plant peroxisomes. We conducted a microscopy-based screen for anomalous distribution of peroxisomally targeted fluorescence in Arabidopsis thaliana. This screen ...
Genetic Dissection of Peroxisome-Associated Matrix Protein Degradation in Arabidopsis thaliana
Peroxisomes are organelles that sequester certain metabolic pathways; many of these pathways generate H2O2, which can damage proteins. However, little is known about how damaged or obsolete peroxisomal proteins are degraded. ...
A pex1 missense mutation improves peroxisome function in a subset of Arabidopsis pex6 mutants without restoring PEX5 recycling
Peroxisomes are eukaryotic organelles critical for plant and human development because they house essential metabolic functions, such as fatty acid β-oxidation. The interacting ATPases PEX1 and PEX6 contribute to peroxisome ...
