Glycolate dehydrogenase occurs in nine species of the Prasinophyceae. The occurrence of glycolate dehydrogenase in these unicellular flagellated organisms does not correspond to the lines of evolution suggested for the green algae based on glycolate enzymology and the nature of the spindle at telophase of mitosis. It is proposed that the evolutionary divergence of the glycolate enzyme came after the evolutionary divergence of the spindle features in the green algae.
