Fumarase (FUM) converts fumarate into malate, which is oxidized by malate dehydrogenase (MDH) again producing one NADH and regenerating the initial oxalacetate so the cycle can start over again.
Fumarase deficiency is an autosomal recessive encephalopathy affecting both the mitochondrial and the cytosolic enzymes.

Beneficial elements are used to increase SMs; for example, the content of a-tocopherol, asparagine and tyrosine (Hediji et al., 2010), isocitrate dehydrogenase (ICDH), citrate synthase (CS), fumarase, malate dehydrogenase (MDH) and phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC) increases in tomato plants (Lopez-Millan et al., 2009) when 100 uM Cd is used in the NS.
If a patient is admitted with a suspected kidney injury, we can screen the injury using blood/urine with the help of an enzyme called fumarase, and then a scan can pinpoint where in the tissue the injury is.
It has also been suggested that necrosis can be detected using hyperpolarized [sup.13]C-fumarate and its extra-cellular conversion to [sup.13]C-malate via fumarase, an enzyme that presents in cytosol and mitochondria [143].
