Biogenesis, maintenance and dynamics of glycosomes in trypanosomatid parasites


Glycosomes are specialized peroxisomes in protists of the taxon Kinetoplastea

Glycosomes compartmentalize enzymes of glycolysis and some other metabolic processes

Compartmentation compensates for a lack of feedback regulation of glycolytic enzymes

Glycosome turnover and dynamics play important roles in remodelling of metabolism

A glycosome-targeted phosphatase participates in lifecycle differentiation signalling
