ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
bacteriochlorophyllide-a dehydrogenase
Reaction catalysed
  • 3-deacetyl-3-(1-hydroxyethyl)bacteriochlorophyllide a + NAD(+) = bacteriochlorophyllide a + H(+) + NADH
  • 3-devinyl-3-(1-hydroxyethyl)chlorophyllide a + NAD(+) = 3-acetyl-3-devinylchlorophyllide a + H(+) + NADH
  • The enzyme, together with EC and EC, is involved in the conversion of chlorophyllide a to bacteriochlorophyllide a.
  • The enzymes can act in multiple orders, resulting in the formation of different intermediates, but the final product of the cumulative action of the three enzymes is always bacteriochlorophyllide a.
  • The enzyme oxidizes a hydroxyl group on ring A, converting it to an oxo group.
