ME2 is a homotetrameric, mitochondrial NAD-dependent malic enzyme that catalyzes the oxidative decarboxylation of malate to pyruvate (1). It is related to malic enzyme 1 (ME1), a cytoplasmic NADP-dependent enzyme that generates NADPH for fatty acid biosynthesis (2). The expression of both malic enzymes is reciprocally regulated by p53; this regulation has been shown to modulate metabolism and senescence (3). Certain single-nucleotide polymorphism haplotypes of the ME2 gene have been shown to increase the risk for idiopathic generalized epilepsy (4).
