ENZYME entry: EC 1.3.1.111

Accepted Name
Geranylgeranyl-bacteriochlorophyllide a reductase.
Reaction catalysed
Bacteriochlorophyll a + 3 NADP(+) <=> geranylgeranyl bacteriochlorophyllide a + 3 NADPH
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme catalyzes the successive reduction of the geranylgeraniol esterifying group to phytol, reducing three out of four double bonds, and transforming geranylgeranyl bacteriochlorophyllide a via dihydrogeranylgeranyl bacteriochlorophyllide a and tetrahydrogeranylgeranyl bacteriochlorophyllide a to bacteriochlorophyll a.
  • The enzyme can also accept the pheophytin derivative geranylgeranyl bacteriopheophytin, converting it to bacteriopheophytin a.
