Development and dynamics of the photosynthetic apparatus in purple phototrophic bacteria.
United States. In Biochim Biophys Acta, Nov 2015
Since in Synechocystis PCC 6803, a link has been established between Chl delivery involving the high-light HilD protein and the SecY/YidC-requiring cotranslational insertion of nascent polypeptides, such a connection between BChl biosynthesis and insertion and folding of nascent R. sphaeroides BChl binding proteins is likely to also occur.
Chlorophyll degradation during senescence.
Bern, Switzerland. In Annu Rev Plant Biol, 2005
The catabolic pathway of chlorophyll (Chl) during senescence and fruit ripening leads to the accumulation of colorless breakdown products (NCCs).
