Dark-operative protochlorophyllide (Pchlide) oxido-reductase (DPOR) is a nitrogenase-like enzyme that catalyzes Pchlide reduction, the penultimate step of chlorophyll a biosynthesis. DPOR is distributed widely among oxygenic phototrophs such as cyanobacteria, green algae and gymnosperms. To determine how DPOR operates in oxygenic photosynthetic cells, we constructed two shuttle vectors for overexpression of Strep-tagged L-protein (ChlL) and Strep-tagged NB-protein (ChlN-ChlB) in Leptolyngbya… CONTINUE READING
