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

Scientists sweep cellular neighborhoods where Zika hides out

Medical Xpress - 28 Aug 2018
For example, the researchers found that one Zika protein, called NS2A, interacted with many human neighbors in a host organelle called the peroxisome. Peroxisomes are involved in innate immune signaling, a type of early-warning alarm that goes off when ...
