|Official Full Name||malic enzyme 3, NADP(+)-dependent, mitochondrial|
|Background||Malic enzyme catalyzes the oxidative decarboxylation of malate to pyruvate using either NAD+ or NADP+ as a cofactor. Mammalian tissues contain 3 distinct isoforms of malic enzyme: a cytosolic NADP(+)-dependent isoform, a mitochondrial NADP(+)-dependent isoform, and a mitochondrial NAD(+)-dependent isoform. This gene encodes a mitochondrial NADP(+)-dependent isoform. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene, but the biological validity of some variants has not been determined.|
|Synonyms||ME3; malic enzyme 3, NADP(+)-dependent, mitochondrial; NADP-dependent malic enzyme, mitochondrial; malate dehydrogenase; pyruvic-malic carboxylase; malic enzyme, NADP+-dependent, mitochondrial; mitochondrial NADP(+)-dependent malic enzyme 3; NADP-ME; FLJ3|
