Arabidopsis thaliana NADP-malic enzyme isoforms: high degree of identity but clearly distinct properties.
Wheeler MC, Arias CL, Tronconi MA, Maurino VG, Andreo CS, Drincovich MF. Plant Mol Biol. 2008 Feb 21.

...... genome contains four NADP-malic enzymes genes (NADP-ME1-4). NADP-ME4 is localized to plastids whereas the other isoforms are cytosolic. NADP-ME2 and 4 are constitutively expressed, while NADP-ME1 is restricted to secondary roots and NADP-ME3 to trichomes and pollen. Although the four isoforms share remarkably high degree of identity (75-90%), recombinant NADP-ME1 through 4 show distinct kinetic properties, both in the forward (malate oxidative decarboxylation) and reverse ......
