Peroxisomes are otherwise known as microbodies. They are single - membrane vesicles of about 0.5 mm in diameter. They contain catalase, D-amino acid oxidase, urate oxidase and other oxidative enzymes.
Microbodies participate in the oxidation of certain nutrients. Hydrogen peroxide, the toxic reduction product of oxygen is decomposed to form water in these organelles.
