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

The protein then travels to peroxisomes, which are cellular structures that break down fats to fuel mitochondrial activity, according to the study. The authors also found that activated PIN4 results in a 4- to 5-fold increase in peroxisome production ...
