Peroxisome assembly protein 22 (IPR024359)

Short name: Peroxin-22

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



Peroxin-22 is an integral peroxisomal membrane protein. The N terminus of peroxin-22 is located in the matrix, while the C terminus is located in the cytosol. Peroxin-22 interacts with the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme Pex4p, anchoring it at the peroxisomal membrane. Both proteins may act at the same step in peroxisome biogenesis [PMID: 10402463].
