|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
- 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.
