Other examples of peroxisomal functions, which includes a significant unidirectional flow of carbon through these organelles, include photorespiration and B-oxidation of fatty acids. In green leaves of plants phosphoglycollateis formed as a result of the oxygenase activity of ribulose bisphosphatase. After dephosphorylation, glycollate is oxidized to glyoxylate by a peroxisomal glycollate oxidase and is further metabolized to malate (Tolbert and Yamazaki, 1969). In fat-storing seeds the B-oxidation system of fatty acids is located in peroxisomes which harbour fatty acyl-CoA oxidase (Beevers, 1969).

Schematic representation of the role of peroxisomes in methanol metabolism in yeasts; (1) peroxisomal oxidation of methanol; (2) chemical formation of a hemimercaptal OF Formaldehyde and glutathione (GSH); (3) oxidation OF formaldehyde by formaldehyde dehydrogenase; (4) hydrolysis of S-formylglutathione and oxidation of Formate; ( 5 ) peroxisomal Formation of formate by alcohol oxidase and/or catalase. for peroxisomes in methanol-utilizingyeasts. For example, the possibility of a peroxidative activity of catalase does not provide additional physiological functions during methanol metabolism.

Thin sections of methanol-limited chemostat grown cells of Hunsenulu polymorphu. (a) Shows positively stained peroxisomes after aerobic incubations with cerium chloride and methanol, indicating the presence of alcohol oxidase activity in the organelles. The presence of L-a-hydroxy acid oxidase was demonstrated after similar incubations with cerium chloride and glycollate (b). (c) Shows the presence of fructose bisphosphatase activity in the cytosol, demonstrated after incubations with cerium chloride and fructose bisphosphate.
