Feature Type
ORF , Verified
Peroxisomal matrix protein with naturally active promoter; well-conserved in fungi; localized to peroxisomes under physiological growth conditions; levels of some amino acids are altered upon both knockout and overexpression, suggesting potential involvement of Pxp2p in amino acid metabolism or related cellular metabolic processes (needs further study); GFP-fusion protein displays inherent dual localization with large proportion localizing to cytosol 1
