Peroxisomal membrane protein 4 (IPR019531)

Short name: Pmp4

Family relationships


Peroxisomes are single membrane bound organelles, present in practically all eukaryotic cells, and involved in a variety of metabolic pathways; the deduced protein is extremely basic, a characteristic of many other peroxisomal intrinsic membrane proteins. They carry two short stretches of hydrophobic residues shown to be necessary for the correct targeting of these proteins. This entry represent Pmp4.
