25002403 PEX16 mediates the peroxisomal trafficking of two distinct peroxisomal membrane proteins, PEX3 and PMP34, via the endoplasmic reticulum
21768384 Data show that knockdown of Sec16B but not Sec16A by RNAi affected the morphology of peroxisomes, inhibited the transport of Pex16 from the ER to peroxisomes, and suppressed expression of Pex3.
20647552 An unusual variant peroxisome biogenesis disorder caused by mutations in the PEX16 gene, with a relatively mild clinical phenotype and an unexpected phenotype in fibroblasts, was identified.
16717127 PEX16 regulates peroxisome assembly by being cotranslationally inserted into the ER and serving to recruit other peroxisomal membrane proteins to membranes.
12223482 Pex16p functions in peroxisome membrane assembly, more likely upstream of Pex3p
11890679 aberrant splicing mutation of the PEX16 gene in patients with Zellweger syndrome
