Abstract

The primary structure of NADP-dependent malic enzyme (NADP-ME) of the dicotyledonous C4 plant Flaveria trinervia was determined from sequence analysis of a cDNA clone containing the complete coding region. Comparison of the mature F. trinervia NADP-ME with the maize enzyme reveals extensive sequence similarity. In contrast, no significant similarity can be detected between the putative transit peptides of the two enzymes. This suggests that the corresponding parts of the genes arose independently from each other during evolution of mono- and dicotyledonous C4 plants.
