NADP-malic enzyme (NADP-ME) characterization and compartmentation between the mesophyll and bundle sheath cells was studied in the C3–C4 intermediate species of Fla6eria floridana. Although three immunoreactive bands were found in crude leaf extracts, only one isoform was purified to homogeneity, probably due to the low specific activity of the other forms and/or differential susceptibility to proteases’ action. The purified enzyme showed intermediate kinetic features between those from C3 and… CONTINUE READING
