|Gene:||NAD-SDH||Accession Number: G-9104 (MetaCyc)|
Species: Malus domestica
Following the purification procedure used to isolate the apple dimeric D-sorbitol dehydrogenase [Yamaguchi94], a second protein of lower molecular weight (42 kDa compared to 62 kDa was identified as well [Yamada98]. This 42 kDa protein was used to isolate a cDNA from a cDNA library, allowing for the characterization of the Malus domestica NAD-SDH gene. The gene was expressed in Escherichia coli and the recombinant protein was confirmed to have sorbitol dehydrogenase activity [Yamada98]. Further substrate specificity was not studied.
Although the gene was barely expressed in young apple fruits, its expression was markedly increased in the matured fruit.
Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 42 kD (experimental) [Yamada98 ]
