Protein

Magnesium protoporphyrin IX methyltransferase, chloroplastic

Gene

CHLM

Organism
Arabidopsis thaliana (Mouse-ear cress)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Converts Mg-protoporphyrin IX to Mg-protoporphyrin IX methylester using S-adenosyl-L-methionine as a cofactor. Involved in chloroplast-to-nucleus signaling by acting as a negative effector of nuclear photosynthetic gene expression.2 Publications

Catalytic activityi

S-adenosyl-L-methionine + magnesium protoporphyrin IX = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + magnesium protoporphyrin IX 13-methyl ester.PROSITE-ProRule annotation1 Publication

Enzyme regulationi

Regulated by the folate status via an increased concentration of S-adenosyl-homocysteine (AdoHcy), a potent inhibitor of most AdoMet-dependent methyltransferases.1 Publication

Pathwayi: chlorophyll biosynthesis

This protein is involved in the pathway chlorophyll biosynthesis, which is part of Porphyrin-containing compound metabolism.
View all proteins of this organism that are known to be involved in the pathway chlorophyll biosynthesis and in Porphyrin-containing compound metabolism.
