Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum (strain Marburg) was found to contain two malate dehydrogenases, which were partially purified and characterized. One was specific for NAD+ and catalyzed the dehydrogenation of malate at approximately one-third of the rate of oxalacetate reduction, and the other could equally well use NAD+ and NADP+ as coenzyme and catalyzed essentially only the reduction of oxalacetate. Via the N-terminal amino acid sequences, the encoding genes were identified in the… CONTINUE READING
