Peroxisomes are bound by a single membrane and can be found in most eukaryotic cells. They bud off of the endoplasmic reticulum and function primarily to enzymatically oxidize fatty acids and then catalyze the breakdown of hydrogen peroxide, a result of fatty acid degradation. In plant cells, peroxisomes assist chloroplasts in photorespiration and convert fatty acids to sugar. In mammals, they are critical in preserving the normal function of brain and lungs and play a role in energy metabolism.

Peroxisome marker antibodies detect proteins specific to peroxisomes and can aid in the study of the structure and dynamics of peroxisomes. Peroxisome marker antibodies can also help elucidate the role or roles a protein may play in the tasks that are performed by peroxisomes. Peroxisome marker antibodies are particularly useful in targeting peroxisomes in fixed cells. Quality Invitrogen peroxisome marker antibodies are available for a variety of research needs.
