Peroxisomes IPA: [pɛɜˈɹɒksɪˌsoʊmz] (also called microbodies) are organelles found in virtually all eukaryotic cells. They are involved in catabolism of very long chain fatty acids, branched chain fatty acids, D-amino acids, and polyamines, reduction of reactive oxygen species – specifically hydrogen peroxide – and biosynthesis of plasmalogens, i.e. ether phospholipids critical for the normal function of mammalian brains and lungs. They also contain approximately 10% of the total activity

Oct. 5 is a special day for our family as we celebrate Pause for PBD, the annual awareness day for The Global Foundation for Peroxisomal Disorders (GFPD). Our son, Ethan, is seven years old and is one of 175 children known to the GFPD living worldwide ...

Infectious Cause of Microcephaly May Not be Zika - 13 Oct 2017
However, more recently, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) has been shown to increase following CMV infection of human neural stem cells and fetal brain sections, and that activation alone has proved sufficient to “impair neuronal ...

Nature Reviews Cancer - 06 Oct 2017
Now, a study published in Cancer Cell reports that CD8+ TILs facing these dual metabolic constraints enhance peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor α (PPARα) signalling and switch to fatty acid (FA) catabolism to preserve effector functions and, ...

Ten years later, in 1995, Evans found the receptor that appeared to control the storage and metabolization of fat, known as a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor, or PPAR-alpha. A few years after that, he identified PPAR-gamma and PPAR-delta ...
