Adult H. microstoma mitochondria catalyzed a malate dehydrogenase, decarboxylating ("malic" enzyme) activity. This "malic" enzyme was found as a soluble component of the mitochondrion, was specific for NADP, and required a divalent cation with Mn++ ion yielding the greatest activity. The H. microstoma "malic" enzyme could fulfill the need for generating intramitochondrial reducing equivalents required for electron transport. The H. microstoma mitochondria also exhibited an NADPH:NAD… CONTINUE READING
