Eukaryotic cells contain functionally distinct, membrane enclosed compartments called organelles. Here we like to address two questions concerning this architectural lay out. How did this membrane complexity arise during evolution and how is this collection of organelles maintained in multiplying...
The import of proteins into the peroxisome matrix is an essential step in peroxisome biogenesis, which is critical for normal functioning of most eukaryotic cells. The translocation of proteins across the peroxisome membrane and the dynamic behavior of the import receptors during the import cycle...
