Abstract Several properties of NADP-malate dehydrogenase in leaves of plants with Calvin cycle photosynthesis have been studied. The enzyme is similar to NADP-malate dehydrogenase in leaves of maize, a plant utilizing the C4-dicarboxylic acid pathway of photosynthesis, in the following respects: (i) the activity of the enzyme is regulated by light in intact leaves., (ii) activation of the enzyme is accomplished by dithiothreitol in vitro., (iii) the enzyme is physically distinct from NAD-malate dehydrogenase and appears to exist in at least two molecular weight forms. These results suggest that NADP-malate dehydrogenase may have a common role in both Calvin cycle and C4-photosynthesis.
