ENZYME entry: EC 2.5.1.133

Accepted Name
Bacteriochlorophyll a synthase.
Reaction catalysed
Geranylgeranyl diphosphate + bacteriochlorophyllide a <=> geranylgeranyl-bacteriochlorophyllide a + diphosphate
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme catalyzes the addition of a geranylgeranyl hydrophobic chain to bacteriochlorophyllide a via an ester bond with the 17-propionate residue.
  • The side chain is later modified to a phytyl chain, resulting in bacteriochlorophyll a.
