In this lecture ´´ Peroxisomes ´´ are explained. Section one is about ´´ Origin´´. In the beginning of this section, the theories of origin are listed and explained. Following this, its relationship with ER is discussed. The theory of origin via Endosymbiosis and rejection of endosymbiosis theory are mentioned in the end.
Molecular Oxygen and Hydrogen Peroxide
Section two is about “Molecular Oxygen and Hydrogen Peroxide”. Firstly, the role of catalases in use of molecular oxygen and hydrogen peroxide is explained in detail. The educator then focuses on the breakdown of fatty acids. In the end, the formation of plasmalogens is illustrated.
Section three is about ‘Peroxisomes Proteins “. In this section, signal sequences are discussed. The educator then explains the protein import into peroxisomes.
Section four is about ‘’ Peroxisomal Disorders’’. Initially, disorders such as single peroxisomal enzyme deficiencies and peroxisomal biogenesis disorders (PBDs) are explained. The educator then focuses on Zellweger syndrome. In the end, X linked adrenoleukodystrophy and infantile refsum disease is discussed.
Peroxisomes in Plants
Section five is about “Peroxisomes in Plants’’. In the start of this session, photorespiration is discussed in detail. The educator then demonstrates glycolate cycle. In the end of this lecture, glyoxisomes are explained.
