Background Information

Peroxins (PEXs) are proteins that are essential for the assembly of functional peroxisomes. Peroxin 16, also known as PEX16 or Peroxisomal biogenesis factor 16, is a 336 amino acid integral membrane protein that has a critical role in the biogenesis of peroxisomes. PEX16 together with PEX3 and PEX19 are specifically involved in peroxisomal membrane protein (PMP) import. Defects in the gene encoding Peroxin 16 are the cause of multiple peroxisome-related disorders, including Zellweger syndrome (ZWS), neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy (NALD), infantile Refsum disease (IRD), classical rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata (RCDP) and peroxisome biogenesis disorder complementation group 9 (PBD-CG9).
