In angiosperms the strictly light-dependent reduction of protochlorophyllide to chlorophyllide is catalyzed by NADPH:protochlorophyllide oxidoreductase (POR). The Arabidopsis thaliana genome encodes three structurally related but differentially regulated POR genes, PORA, PORB and PORC. PORA is expressed primarily early in development—during etiolation, germination and greening. In contrast, PORB and PORC are not only expressed during seedling development but also throughout the later life of… CONTINUE READING
