Chlorophyllase catalyzes the first step in the catabolic pathway of chlorophyll. It is a constitutive enzyme located in chloroplast membranes. In isolated plastids the hydrolysis of the endogenous chlorophyll does not take place unless the membranes are solubilized in the presence of detergent. The structural latency of chlorophyllase activity appears to be due to the differential locations of substrate and enzyme within the plastids. Envelope membranes prepared from both chloroplasts and… CONTINUE READING
