  • a The + symbol denotes the presence of a particular peroxisomal morphological phenotype. Increased numbers of + symbols denote increased prevalence of a particular peroxisomal morphological phenotype. The absence of a + symbol denotes the absence of a particular peroxisomal morphological phenotype.
