IUBMB Comments
This enzyme, found in green sulfur bacteria (Chlorobiaceae) and green flimentous bacteria (Chloroflexaceae), is involved in the biosynthesis of bacteriochlorophylls c, d and e. It acts in the direction of hydration, and the hydroxyl group that is formed is essential for the ability of the resulting bacteriochlorophylls to self-aggregate in the chlorosomes, unique light-harvesting antenna structures found in these organisms. The product is formed preferentially in the (R)-configuration.
