Magnesium chelatase and magnesium protoporphyrin IX monomethyl ester (oxidative) cyclase activities were both sensitive to inhibition by p-chloromercuribenzoate in intact, developing cucumber (Cucumis sativus L. var Beit Alpha) chloroplasts. Magnesium chelatase was also sensitive to the membrane-impermeable mercurial p-chloromercuribenzene sulfonate(More)
High pressure liquid chromatography was used to demonstrate that chelation of Mg(2+) into protoporphyrin IX precedes methylation in isolated greening etioplasts from cucumber (Cucumis sativus L. var. Beit Alpha) cotyledons. Mg-protoporphyrin IX synthesized in vitro from protoporphyrin IX, Mg(2+), and ATP or exogenous Mg-protoporphyrin IX could serve as(More)
Evidence was obtained by means of low temperature spectrofluorimetry and high pressure liquid chromatography for the exclusive chelation of Mg(2+) into protoporphyrin IX by a plastid preparation extracted from greening cucumber cotyledons. Under the experimental conditions which were optimized for Mg(2+) chelation, Zn(2+) chelation was not detected.(More)
