PEX16 iso2 Required for peroxisome membrane biogenesis. May play a role in early stages of peroxisome assembly. Can recruit other peroxisomal proteins, such as PEX3 and PMP34, to de novo peroxisomes derived from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). May function as receptor for PEX3. Belongs to the peroxin-16 family. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
