Primary leaves of 7- to 9-day-old etiolated seedlings of Phaseolus vulgaris L. var. Red Kidney infiltrated in darkness with aqueous solutions of alpha, alpha'-dipyridyl, o-phenanthroline, pyridine-2-aldoxime, pyridine-2-aldehyde, 8-hydroxyquinoline, or picolinic acid synthesize large amounts of magnesium protoporphyrin monomethyl ester and lesser amounts of magnesium protoporphyrin, protoporphyrin, and protochlorophyllide. Pigment formation proceeds in a linear manner for up to 21 hours after… CONTINUE READING
