Annotation and analysis of malic enzyme genes encoding for multiple isoforms in the fungus Mucor circinelloides CBS 277.49

Based on the newly-released genomic data of Mucor circinelloides CBS 277.49, we have annotated five genes encoding for malic enzyme: all code for proteins that contain conserved domains/motifs for malic acid binding, NAD+ binding and NAD(P)+ binding. Phylogenetic analysis for malic enzyme genes showed that genes ID 78524 and 11639 share ~80% amino acid… CONTINUE READING
