Protein

Peroxisome biogenesis protein 12

Gene

PEX12

Organism
Arabidopsis thaliana (Mouse-ear cress)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Required for peroxisome biogenesis and for PTS1- and PTS2-dependent protein import into peroxisomes. Essential for the peroxisomal targeting of PEX7. Required for the export/release of receptors on the peroxisome membrane. Acts as an E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase involved in monoubiquitination of PEX5.6 Publications
