Protochlorophyllide (Pchilide) photoconversion, a key step in the biosynthesis of chlorophyll, is catalyzed by the enzyme NADPH: Pchlide oxidoreductase. We have previously shown that the pc-1 mutation of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii causes a defect in photoconversion in vivo. The double mutant pc-1 y-7 failed to photoconvert Pchlide to chlorophyllide, whereas the yellow mutant y-7 showed normal photoconversion (Ford et al. 1981). We have now obtained similar results in vitro, using detergent… CONTINUE READING
