Peroxisomal ABC transporter complex PXA1-PXA2 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.

Peroxisomal ABC transporter involved in transmembrane transport of long chain fatty acids, most likely in their CoA ester form, into the peroxisomal matrix prior to beta-oxidation. Very long chain acyl-CoA esters are hydrolyzed by the PXA1-PXA2 complex prior to the transport of their fatty acid portion into the peroxisomes with the CoA being released into the cytoplasm.
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.
