Peroxisomes are single membrane enclosed cell organelles, which are present in almost all eukaryotic cells. In addition to the common peroxisomal pathways such as beta-oxidation of fatty acids and decomposition of H2O2, these organelles fulfil a range of metabolic and non-metabolic functions. Peroxisomes are very important since various human disorders exist that are caused by a defect in peroxisome function.
Here we describe our current knowledge on the molecular mechanisms of peroxisome biogenesis in yeast, including peroxisomal protein sorting, organelle dynamics and peroxisomal membrane contact sites.
