Characterization of the NADP malic enzyme gene family in the facultative, single-cell C-4 monocot Hydrilla verticillata

Estavillo, Gonzalo; Rao, Srinath K.; Reiskind, Julia B.; Bowes, George

Description

Hydrilla verticillata has a facultative single-cell system that changes from C3 to C4 photosynthesis. A NADP+-dependent malic enzyme (NADP-ME) provides a high [CO2] for Rubisco fixation in the C4 leaf chloroplasts. Of three NADP-ME genes identified, only
