MetaCyc Enzyme: protochlorophyllide oxidoreductase

Gene: PORA Accession Number: AT5G54190 (MetaCyc)

Synonyms: AT5g54190

Species: Arabidopsis thaliana col

Summary:
The NADPH:protochlorophyllide oxidoreductase (POR) catalyzes the photoreduction of protochlorophyllide to chlorophyllide in higher plants. It has been shown that there are two POR's active, POR A which is exclusively expressed in young plants and is required for greening and POR B which is expressed both in seedlings and adult plants and sustains light-dependent chlorophyll biosynthesis in mature plants [Armstrong95] [Runge96]. Although a wealth of information has been accumulated on the functions and properties of the light-dependent PORA and PORB enzymes, the only functional information available at the time of this review concern PORC.

Enzymatic reaction of: protochlorophyllide oxidoreductase

EC Number: 1.3.1.33

chlorophyllide a + NADP+ <=> protochlorophyllide a + NADPH + H+

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

The reaction is favored in the opposite direction.
