Stereochemical course of the formation of the C(7)-formyl group from a chiral methyl group during the transformation of chlorophyllide a into chlorophyllide b

By Peter M. Shoolingin-Jordan and Stephen C. Williams


The biosynthesis of chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b from (2R,3R)- and (2S,3S)-5-amino[2,3-14C2,2,3- 2H2,2,3-3H2]levulinic acid in greening barley has established that chlorophyllide a oxidase catalyses the transformation of the methyl group at C(7) of chlorophyllide a into the CHO group of chlorophyllide b with the loss of HSi from the 7-(hydroxymethyl)chlorophyllide intermediate
