Journal Article
Manful, T., Ruppert, T., Tielens, A. G. M., van Hellemond, J. J., Clayton, C., Colasante, C., & Voncken, F. (2013). Proteins and lipids of glycosomal membranes from Leishmania tarentolae and Trypanosoma brucei. F1000Research, 2, (0 - 0). doi:10.3410/f1000research.2-27.v1

In kinetoplastid protists, several metabolic pathways, including glycolysis and purine salvage, are located in glycosomes, which are microbodies that are evolutionarily related to peroxisomes. With the exception of some potential transporters for fat... Read More

An internal sequence targets Trypanosoma brucei triosephosphate isomerase to glycosomes (2010)
Journal Article
Galland, N., de Walque, S., Voncken, F. G., Verlinde, C. L., & Michels, P. A. (2010). An internal sequence targets Trypanosoma brucei triosephosphate isomerase to glycosomes. Molecular and Biochemical Parasitology, 171(1), (45-49). doi:10.1016/j.molbiopara.2010.01.002. ISSN 0166-6851

In kinetoplastid protists, glycolysis is compartmentalized in glycosomes, organelles belonging to the peroxisome family. The Trypanosoma brucei glycosomal enzyme triosephosphate isomerase (TPI) does not contain either of the two established peroxisom... Read More

Mitochondrial carrier family inventory of Trypanosoma brucei brucei: identification, expression and subcellular localisation (2009)
Journal Article

The mitochondrial carrier family (MCF) is a group of structurally conserved proteins that mediate the transport of a wide range of metabolic intermediates across the mitochondrial inner membrane. In this paper, an overview of the mitochondrial carrie... Read More
