PORC protein (Arabidopsis thaliana) - STRING interaction network
"PORC" - Encodes for a protein with protochlorophyllide oxidoreductase activity. The enzyme is NADPH- and light-dependent in Arabidopsis thaliana
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology

PORCEncodes for a protein with protochlorophyllide oxidoreductase activity. The enzyme is NADPH- and light-dependent (401 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
UbiA prenyltransferase family protein; Encodes a protein with chlorophyll synthase activity. This enzyme has been shown to perform the esterification of chlorophyllide (a and b), the last step of chlorophyll biosynthesis. Although it can use either geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate (GGPP) or phytyl pyrophosphate (PhyPP) as substrates, the esterification reaction was faster with GGPP than with PhyPP (387 aa)
Divinyl chlorophyllide a 8-vinyl-reductase, chloroplastic; Catalyzes the conversion of divinyl chlorophyllide to monovinyl chlorophyllide. Reduces the 8-vinyl group of the tetrapyrrole to an ethyl group using NADPH as the reductant. The best substrate is (3,8-divinyl)-chlorophyllide a (DV-Chlidea). Very low activity with (3,8-divinyl)-protochlorophyllide a (DV- Pchlidea) and (3,8-divinyl)-magnesium-protoporphyrin IX monomethyl ester (DV-MPE). No activity with (3,8-divinyl)-chlorophyllide b (DV-Chlideb), (3,8-divinyl)-magnesium-protoporphyrin IX (DV-Mg- Proto) and either (3,8-divinyl)-c [...] (417 aa)
Magnesium-protoporphyrin IX monomethyl ester [oxidative] cyclase, chloroplastic; Catalyzes the formation of the isocyclic ring in chlorophyll biosynthesis. Mediates the cyclase reaction, which results in the formation of divinylprotochlorophyllide (Pchlide) characteristic of all chlorophylls from magnesium-protoporphyrin IX 13-monomethyl ester (MgPMME) (409 aa)
Pheophorbide a oxygenase family protein with Rieske [2Fe-2S] domain; Encodes chlorophyllide <i>a</i> oxygenase which converts chlorophyllide <i>a</i> to chlorophyllide <i>b</i> by catalyzing two successive hydroxylations at the 7-methyl group of chlorophyllide <i>a</i> . Mutants are deficient in pigments that associate with thylakoid membrane proteins, lacking chlorophyll <i>b</i> and light-harvesting proteins of photosystem II. The protein was shown through cross-linking experiments to interact with Toc75, Toc34, Tic40, Tic20 and Tic22 (536 aa)
Chlorophyllase-2, chloroplastic; Encodes a chlorophyllase, the first enzyme in chlorophyll degradation. It catalyzes the hydrolysis of the ester bond to chlorophyllide and phytol. AtCLH2 has a typical signal sequence for the chloroplast. Gene expression does not respond to methyljasmonate, a known promoter of senescence and chlorophyll degradation (318 aa)
Encodes a protein with methyltransferase activity responsible for the methylation of magnesium protoporphyrin IX. Mutants defective in this gene are affected in chlorophyll biosynthesis and show a reduction in the accumulation of a number of major thylakoid-associated proteins including components of PSI (LHCI), PSII (LHCII, D1, CP43) and the cytochrome b6f complex (Cytf). By contrast, no significant changes were detected for the proteins of the stroma and the chloroplast envelope; Belongs to the class I-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily. Magnesium protoporphyrin O- methyl [...] (312 aa)
Chlorophyllase-1; Chlorophyllase is the first enzyme involved in chlorophyll degradation. It catalyzes the hydrolysis of the ester bond to yield chlorophyllide and phytol. AtCLH1 lacks a typical signal sequence for the chloroplast. Its expression is induced rapidly by methyljasmonate, a known promoter of senescence and chlorophyll degradation; Belongs to the AB hydrolase superfamily. Lipase family (324 aa)
Pyridine nucleotide-disulphide oxidoreductase family protein; Encodes for a multifunctional protein with geranylgeranyl reductase activity shown to catalyze the reduction of prenylated geranylgeranyl-chlorophyll a to phytyl-chlorophyll a (chlorophyll a) and free geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate to phytyl pyrophosphate (467 aa)
Protochlorophyllide reductase B, chloroplastic; Phototransformation of protochlorophyllide (Pchlide) to chlorophyllide (Chlide); Belongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family. POR subfamily (401 aa)
Protein STAY-GREEN 1, chloroplastic; Involved in the disassembling mechanism of the intact light-harvesting complex of photosystem II (LHCII) in the thylakoid membranes. Required to trigger chlorophyll degradation during natural and dark-induced leaf senescence. Regulated at the transcriptional level by ABI3 (268 aa)
