ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Reaction catalysed
Chlorophyll + H(2)O <=> phytol + chlorophyllide
  • Chlorophyllase has been found in higher plants, diatoms, and in the green algae Chlorella.
  • Forms part of the chlorophyll degradation pathway and is thought to take part in de-greening processes such as fruit ripening, leaf senescence and flowering, as well as in the turnover and homeostasis of chlorophyll.
  • Acts preferentially on chlorophyll a but will also accept chlorophyll b and pheophytins as substrates.
  • Ethylene and methyl jasmonate, which are known to accelerate senescence in many species, can enhance the activity of the hormone- inducible form of this enzyme.
