Abstract:
Arabidopsis CGI-58 influences multiple aspects of lipid metabolism by interacting with the peroxisomal transport protein PXA1. PXA1 serves as a gateway for the entry of lipids into peroxisomes, where additional enzymes are present for the degradation of fatty acids or the conversion of jasmonate and auxin precursors into biologically more active forms.
