Table 1 NADP utilizing enzymes Enzymes are arranged by their sequential functional order. They are given by their name, their EC numbers, the gene identification (PfID) in the Plasmodium genome database (PlasmoDB), the time (in hours post invasion (HPI)) in the parasite's developmental cycle when they are maximally transcribed obtained from the IDC database and the metabolic function of the enzyme.

From: Data mining of the transcriptome of Plasmodium falciparum: the pentose phosphate pathway and ancillary processes
