IUBMB Comments

The enzyme catalyses 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.

The expected taxonomic range for this enzyme is: Bacteria, Eukaryota, Archaea

Synonyms
bacteriochlorophyll synthase, bacteriochlorophyll a synthase, bchl synthase, ct1610, more
