Peroxisomes are ubiquitous organelles that harbor diverse metabolic pathways, which are essential for normal cell performance. Conserved functions of these organelles are hydrogen peroxide metabolism and beta-oxidation. Cells employ multiple quality control mechanisms to ensure proper peroxisome function and to protect peroxisomes from damage. These involve the function of molecular chaperones, a peroxisomal Lon protease and autophagic removal of dysfunctional organelles. In addition, multiple mechanisms exist to combat peroxisomal oxidative stress. Here, we outline recent advances in our understanding of peroxisomal quality control, focussing on yeast and filamentous fungi.
