|Chlorophyllide a hydrolase.
|BciC (gene name).|
|Chlorophyllide a + H(2)O <=> 8-ethyl-12-methyl-3-vinyl-bacteriochlorophyllide d + methanol + CO(2)|
- This enzyme, found in green sulfur bacteria (Chlorobiaceae) and green
filamentous bacteria (Chloroflexaceae), catalyzes the first committed
step in the biosynthesis of bacteriochlorophylls c, d and e,
the removal of the C-13(2)-methylcarboxyl group from chlorophyllide
- The reaction is very similar to the conversion of pheophorbide a to
pyropheophorbide a during chlorophyll a degradation, which is
catalyzed by EC 126.96.36.199.
