Peroxisomal PEX13-PEX14-PEX17 docking complex Overview

GO Annotations consist of four mandatory components: a gene product, a term from one of the three Gene Ontology (GO) controlled vocabularies (Molecular Function, Biological Process, and Cellular Component), a reference, and an evidence code.

Facilitates the peroxoisomal-membrane docking of cargo-loaded, peroxisomal targeting signal type 1 (PTS1) and PTS2 proteins. Proteins designated for peroxisomes are synthezised on cytosolic ribosomes and are recognised by the receptor PEX5 (P35056) via their PTS1 or the PEX7-PEX18 receptor complex via their PTS2 This receptor-cargo-complexes bind to the docking-complex at the peroxisomal membrane. It is assumed that the binding between the docking complex and cargo-loaded receptors leads to the formation of a transient pore.
GO Slim Terms

The yeast GO Slim terms are higher level terms that best represent the major S. cerevisiae biological processes, functions, and cellular components. The GO Slim terms listed here are the broader parent terms for the specific terms to which this gene product is annotated, and thus represent the more general processes, functions, and components in which it is involved.
