The organelle belongs to microbody family of organelles which includes glyoxisomes from plants and glycosomes from trypanosomes.
The single membrane bound organelle lacks its own genome and the nuclear encoded proteins are imported post-transaltionally.
Recently some insight has been gained about the biogenesis, maintenance, inheritance and most interestingly the trasnlocation across membrane in native (oligomeric too) form.
This website aims at collecting the peroxisome and related research updates, briefly summarizing the new articles, analyzing the new insights and present it in a easy to read form.
