Regulation of the transport of citrate synthase into peroxisomes

In close collaboration with the Schuldiner lab from the Weizmann Institute, Israel, and the Erdmann lab from the Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, Renate Maier and Andreas Schummer revealed that phosphorylation of Pex14, a core component of the peroxisomal import machinery, provides a posttranslational mechanism to redistribute peroxisomal citrate synthase Cit2 to the cytosol. This helps yeast cells to rapidly adjust their metabolism to the available carbon source.
