WP 2. The significance of peroxisomal transporters in cellular metabolism and signaling

The aim of WorkPackage 2 is to identify novel peroxisomal transporters and to analyze their function.

We will use:

  • bioinformatics
  • proteomics approaches using purified peroxisomal membrane fractions
  • proteomic analyses on affinity-purified complexes of Pex19, the receptor for peroxisomal membrane proteins
  • in vivo screens to identify proteins that have the capacity to transport various molecules across peroxisomal membranes
