PEX11A (Peroxisomal Biogenesis Factor 11 Alpha) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Regulation of lipid metabolism by Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha). GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is PEX11B. This gene is a member of the PEX11 family, which is composed of membrane elongation factors involved in regulation of peroxisome maintenance and proliferation. This gene product interacts with peroxisomal membrane protein 19 and may respond to outside stimuli to increase peroxisome abundance. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene.
Peroxisomal membrane protein 11A is a protein that in humans is encoded by the PEX11A gene.
Mouse monoclonal antibody raised against a partial recombinant PEX11A. May be involved in peroxisomal proliferation and may regulate peroxisomes division (PubMed:9792670). May mediate binding of coatomer proteins to the peroxisomal membrane (By similarity). Promotes membrane protrusion and elongation on the peroxisomal surface (PubMed:20826455).
