PEX13

PEX13

A gene on chromosome 2p16.1 that encodes peroxin-13, a peroxisomal membrane protein that binds type-1 peroxisomal-targeting signal receptor and is part of the peroxisomal translocation machinery.

Molecular pathology
PEX13 mutations cause peroxisome biogenesis spectrum disorders—e.g., Zellweger syndrome.
