PEX16

(redirected from OTTHUMP00000234739)

PEX16

A gene on chromosome 11p11.2 that encodes an integral peroxisomal membrane protein that structurally and functionally restores peroxisomes, suggesting that PEX16 plays a role in peroxisome organisation and biogenesis.

Molecular pathology
Inactivating nonsense mutations of PEX16 may be seen in the complementation group 9 form of Zellweger syndrome.
