Distribution of peroxins (A), and possible peroxisomal enzymes (B) in metazoan genomes. Organisms lacking peroxins are highlighted in red. a Identification of peroxins. The green squares indicate identification with high confidence. The identification of Pex10 in the Oikopleura dioica genome with lower confidence (marked by an asterisk) was rejected as a false-positive based on phylogenetic analysis (Figure S1). b Identification of putative peroxisomal enzymes and enyzmes of mitochondrial beta-oxidation. Predicted subcellular localization is indicated in the following colors: grey, no targeting signal detected; red, peroxisomal targeting sequence type 1 or 2 (pts); blue, mitochondrial localization signal (mito); and yellow, secretory pathway signal peptide (sec). Combinations of several different localization signals are shown as follows: violet, pts and mito; orange, pts and sec; green, sec and mito; and black, pts, mito and sec.
