Gene: PEX16 (peroxisomal biogenesis factor 16) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PEX16
Name: peroxisomal biogenesis factor 16
Description: Exhibits protein C-terminus binding activity. Involved in several processes, including ER-dependent peroxisome organization; peroxisome membrane biogenesis; and protein localization to peroxisome. Localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum; endoplasmic reticulum membrane; and integral component of peroxisomal membrane. Implicated in peroxisomal biogenesis disorder and peroxisome biogenesis disorder 8A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: PBD8A; PBD8B; peroxin 16; peroxin-16; peroxisomal membrane protein PEX16; peroxisome biogenesis factor 16
