Peroxisomes as dynamic organelles

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Peroxisomes are cell organelles that are present inalmost all eukaryotic cells. Their enzyme content – andhence their function – is highly variable and dependson the organism, cell type and developmental stage,and (in ‘yeast and filamentous fungi) on the growthconditions. Peroxisomes are highly dynamic organelles:both their function and their abundance (number percell, size) may rapidly change in response to externalstimuli.
