A new class EC 7, Translocases, has been added to the EC list. It will be part of ENZYME from release 2018_10. Read more about EC 7 here.

ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
3,8-divinyl protochlorophyllide a 8-vinyl-reductase (ferredoxin).
Alternative Name(s)
Cyano-type divinyl chlorophyllide a 8-vinyl-reductase.
Reaction catalysed
Protochlorophyllide a + 2 oxidized ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster <=> 3,8-divinyl protochlorophyllide a + 2 reduced ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + 2 H(+)
  • The enzyme, found in many phototrophic bacteria, land plants, and some green and red algae, is involved in the production of monovinyl versions of (bacterio)chlorophyll pigments from their divinyl precursors.
  • It can also act on 3,8-divinyl chlorophyllide a, 3,8-divinyl chlorophyll a, and chlorophyll c2.
  • Cf. EC
