Disease relevance of chlL

  • The polypeptide encoded by chlL contains a striking 53% amino acid sequence identity with the bacteriochlorophyll (bch) biosynthesis bchL gene product in the photosynthetic bacterium Rhodobacter capsulatus [1].
  • The Klebsiella pneumoniae nitrogenase Fe protein gene (nifH) functionally substitutes for the chlL gene in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii [2].

High impact information on chlL

  • Analysis of the chlL, chlN, and chlB transcript levels in both light- and dark-grown wild-type and y mutant cells showed that the y mutations have no effect on the transcription of these plastid genes [3].
  • Analysis of chlL transcript distribution on polysome profiles and rates of protein turnover in chloramphenicol-treated cells suggested that CHLL formation is most probably blocked at translation initiation or elongation [3].
  • Transformants for which the multicopy chloroplast genome was homoplasmic for the disrupted chlL allele exhibit a "yellow-in-the-dark" phenotype that we demonstrated to be a result of the dark accumulation of protochlorophyllide [1].
  • Results from RT-PCR amplification indicated that the chlL gene in C. protothecoides contained a 951-bp intron, and the splicing catalytic core structure was similar to that of the light-regulated intron in the psbA gene of Chlamydomonas [4].
