Method (Primary Source, abstract:) researchers used two different pH-sensitive yellow fluorescent proteins targeted to the peroxisome by virtue of a C-terminal SKL
Comments p.268 right column top paragraph: "The pH of the peroxisomal lumen is reported to be 8.2 this coincides with the pH optimum for most peroxisomal enzymes, which lies between 8 and 9 (primary Source)."
