To study the molecular evolution of NADP-dependent malic enzyme (NADP-ME) in the genus Flaveria a leaf-specific cDNA library of the C3 plant F. pringlei was screened for the presence of sequences homologous to the C4 isoform gene (named modA) of the C4 plant F. trinervia. The cDNAs isolated contained varying numbers of identical restriction fragments suggesting that they were derived from a single gene. This was supported by Southern hybridisation experiments with genomic DNA from F. trinervia… CONTINUE READING
