long-chain fatty acid import into peroxisome  
posttranslational protein targeting to membrane, translocation  
protein import into chloroplast stroma +  
protein import into chloroplast thylakoid membrane 
protein import into mitochondrial intermembrane space  
protein import into mitochondrial matrix  
protein import into peroxisome matrix +   
The import of proteins into the peroxisomal matrix. A peroxisome targeting signal (PTS) binds to a soluble receptor protein in the cytosol, and the resulting complex then binds to a receptor protein in the peroxisome membrane and is imported. The cargo protein is then released into the peroxisome matrix.
protein import into peroxisome matrix, translocation  
protein import into peroxisome membrane  
SRP-dependent cotranslational protein targeting to membrane, translocation  

Synonyms
Exact Synonyms: peroxisome matrix protein import ;   protein transport to peroxisome matrix
