IUBMB Comments
This is the last common enzyme in the biosynthesis of chlorophylls and heme . Two isoenzymes exist in plants: one in plastids and the other in mitochondria. This is the target enzyme of phthalimide-type and diphenylether-type herbicides . The enzyme from oxygen-dependent species contains FAD . Also slowly oxidizes mesoporphyrinogen IX.
