Peroxisomal membrane protein 14 (IPR025655)

Short name: PEX14

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



Peroxisomal membrane protein PEX14, or peroxin-14, is a core component of the peroxisomal translocation machinery or importomer [PMID: 10704444, PMID: 19197237]. PEX14 is involved in the docking of PEX5-bound protein onto the peroxisomal membrane, and it may be involved in the translocation step into the peroxisome matrix [PMID: 17046076]. In addition to its role in protein docking, a role in transcriptional regulation has also been suggested for PEX14 [PMID: 11863372].
