    ..We have isolated a human PEX16 cDNA (HsPEX16) by performing an expressed-sequence-tag homology search on a human DNA database, by using yeast ..

    ..Our aim was to determine the role of microtubules in the biogenesis of peroxisomes. Fusion experiments between human PEX16- and PEX1-mutant cells in the presence of nocodazol implied that microtubules were not required for import of ..

    ..We also identified human PEX16, a novel integral peroxisomal membrane protein, and found that PBD061 had inactivating mutations in the PEX16 gene...

    Previously we isolated human PEX16 encoding 336-amino acid-long peroxin Pex16p and showed that its dysfunction was responsible for Zellweger syndrome of complementation group D (group 9)...

    ..We further show that PEX16 regulates this process by being cotranslationally inserted into the ER and serving to recruit other peroxisomal ..

    ..Finally, our observation that Pex19p contains two distinct binding sites for Pex3p suggests that the peroxin may bind PMPs in multiple places and for multiple purposes. ..

    ..Based on these novel findings, we suggest a model for the import of PMPs that provides new insights into the molecular mechanisms underlying the biogenesis of peroxisomes and its regulation involving Pex3p, Pex19p, and Pex16p. ..

    ..These results indicate that Pex3p follows the ER-to-peroxisomal route in mammalian cells and provides new clues to understand its function. ..

    ..Concomitant with the overexpression of Sec16B, peroxisomal membrane biogenesis factors peroxin 3 (Pex3) and Pex16 were redistributed from peroxisomes to Sec16B-positive ER membranes...
