ENZYME entry: EC 1.3.7.4

Accepted Name
Phytochromobilin:ferredoxin oxidoreductase.
Alternative Name(s)
P-Phi-B synthase.
PFB synthase.
Phytochromobilin synthase.
Reaction catalysed
(3Z)-phytochromobilin + 2 oxidized [2Fe-2S] ferredoxin <=> biliverdin IX-alpha + 2 reduced [2Fe-2S] ferredoxin
Comment(s)
  • Catalyzes the two-electron reduction of biliverdin IX-alpha.
  • Can use [2Fe-2S] ferredoxins from a number of sources as acceptor but not the [4Fe-4S] ferredoxin from Clostridium pasteurianum.
  • The isomerization of (3Z)-phytochromobilin to (3E)-phytochromobilin is thought to occur prior to covalent attachment to apophytochrome in the plant cell cytoplasm.
  • Flavodoxins can be used instead of ferredoxin.
