Chlorophylls are essential components of the photosynthetic apparati that sustain all of the life forms that ultimately depend on solar energy. However, a drawback of the extraordinary photosensitizing efficiency of certain chlorophyll species is their ability to generate harmful singlet oxygen. Recent studies have clarified the catabolic processes involved in the detoxification of chlorophylls in land plants, but little is understood about these strategies in aquatic ecosystem. Here, we report… Expand
Taming chlorophylls by early eukaryotes underpinned algal interactions and the diversification of the eukaryotes on the oxygenated Earth
TLDR
The results strongly suggest that CACC, which allowed the consumption of oxygenic primary producers, ultimately permitted the successful radiation of the eukaryotes throughout and after the late Proterozoic global oxygenation. Expand
Phyllobilins--the abundant bilin-type tetrapyrrolic catabolites of the green plant pigment chlorophyll.
TLDR
'How' chlorophyll is degraded in higher plants is outlined, and suggestions as to 'why' the plants dispose of their valuable green pigments during senescence and ripening are given. Expand
cPPB‐aE is discovered from photosynthetic benthic dinoflagellates
TLDR
This is the first report of this chlorophyll derivative in photosynthetic organisms and it is suggested that the derivative is used to quench excess light energy. Expand
Chlorophyll breakdown—Regulation, biochemistry and phyllobilins as its products
Abstract Chlorophyll breakdown occurs throughout the life cycle of a plant, but is most obvious during leaf senescence and fruit ripening when respective tissues visually degreen. ImportantExpand
Phyllobilins: A New Group of Bioactive Compounds
TLDR
The chapter will include a review of the recent findings regarding the phyllobilins with a detailed description of the structures of phyll Mobilins, methods of analysis and isolation, spectroscopic techniques applied for structural elucidation, and the relationship between structure of phytobilins and possible physiological actions.

TLDR
Evidence is provided for a rather different pathway that is widespread in aquatic ecosystems and relates to protist feeding on picoplankton and is related to linear tetrapyrroles in land plants. Expand
Breakdown of Chlorophyll in Higher Plants—Phyllobilins as Abundant, Yet Hardly Visible Signs of Ripening, Senescence, and Cell Death
TLDR
The structural features, chemical properties, and abundance of the phyllobilins in the biosphere suggest biological roles, which still remain to be elucidated. Expand
Cellular viability and the occurrence and significance of chlorophyll allomers during phytoplankton turnover
Phytoplankton can exist in the water column, whole but non-functional, and the percentage of these dead cells in highly variable. These dead cells can contain chlorophyll and contribute to oceanExpand
PfsR Is a Key Regulator of Iron Homeostasis in Synechocystis PCC 6803
TLDR
Electrophoretic mobility shift assays showed that PfsR bound to its own promoter and thereby auto-regulated its own expression, suggesting that PFSR is a critical regulator of iron homeostasis. Expand
Host cell pigmentation in Scenedesmus dimorphus as a beacon for nascent parasite infection
TLDR
Changes in host cell photosynthesis and bulk chlorophyll content were found to lag behind parasite replication, raising the possibility of using host–cell pigment changes as indicators of nascent parasite infection. Expand
