At least two isoforms of ME2 are known to exist; this antibody will detect both isoforms. ME2 antibody is not expected to cross-react with ME1.
ME2 is a homotetrameric, mitochondrial NAD-dependent malic enzyme that catalyzes the oxidative decarboxylation of malate to pyruvate. It is related to malic enzyme 1 (ME1), a cytoplasmic NADP-dependent enzyme that generates NADPH for fatty acid biosynthesis. The expression of both malic enzymes is reciprocally regulated by p53; this regulation has been shown to modulate metabolism and senescence. Certain single-nucleotide polymorphism haplotypes of the ME2 gene have been shown to increase the risk for idiopathic generalized epilepsy.
