IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 1.17.7.2

Names

Accepted name:
7-hydroxymethyl chlorophyll a reductase
Other names:
HCAR
71-hydroxychlorophyll a:ferredoxin oxidoreductase
Systematic name:
chlorophyll-a:ferredoxin oxidoreductase

Reactions

Cofactors

Comments:

Contains FAD and an iron-sulfur center. This enzyme, which is present in plant chloroplasts, carries out the second step in the conversion of chlorophyll b to chlorophyll a (cf. EC 1.1.1.294, chlorophyll(ide) b reductase).
