Abstract

We have isolated a rice cDNA clone that is homologous to the gene for the maize NADP-dependent malic enzyme (EC 1.1.1.40; NADP-ME). The deduced amino acid sequence coded for by the cDNA indicates a high level of homology to chloroplast type NADP-ME, including a transit peptide with pronounced hydrophobic properties at the amino terminus. Northern blot analysis indicates that the expression of this gene is regulated by external stress such as submergence.
