Comments P.5 right column bottom paragraph: "Some preliminary information is available on mechanisms of metabolite transport through the peroxisomal membrane. In contrast to the inner mitochondrial membrane, which contains nearly 50 membrane transport proteins, the peroxisomal membrane contains no more than 10 proteins and only a few of them fulfill transport functions (primary source). In contrast to, for example, lysosomal enzymes, the enzymes in peroxisomes do not show latency, i.e. they do not increase their activity after disruption of the organelle membrane by physical treatment or detergents."
