Peroxin required for peroxisomal matrix protein targeting; acts on proteins containing the PTS2 targeting sequence; interacts with Pex7p; constitutively expressed; partially redundant with Pex18p; required for import of the Gpd1p-Pnc1p heterodimer in which only Gpd1p has a peroxisomal targeting signal; relative distribution to cytoplasmic foci increases upon DNA replication stress; Belongs to the peroxin-21 family.
