EC                  Enzyme                                 

ferredoxin:protochlorophyllide reductase (ATP-dependent);
light-independent protochlorophyllide reductase
Acting on the CH-CH group of donors;
With an iron-sulfur protein as acceptor
BRITE hierarchy
ATP-dependent ferredoxin:protochlorophyllide-a 7,8-oxidoreductase
chlorophyllide a + oxidized ferredoxin + 2 ADP + 2 phosphate = protochlorophyllide a + reduced ferredoxin + 2 ATP + 2 H2O [RN:R06282]
chlorophyllide a [CPD:C02139];
oxidized ferredoxin [CPD:C00139];
ADP [CPD:C00008];
phosphate [CPD:C00009]
protochlorophyllide a [CPD:C02880];
reduced ferredoxin [CPD:C00138];
ATP [CPD:C00002];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Occurs in photosynthetic bacteria, cyanobacteria, green algae and gymnosperms. The enzyme catalyses trans-reduction of the D-ring of protochlorophyllide; the product has the (7S,8S)-configuration. Unlike EC (protochlorophyllide reductase), light is not required. The enzyme contains a [4Fe-4S] cluster, and structurally resembles the Fe protein/MoFe protein complex of nitrogenase (EC, which catalyses an ATP-driven reduction.
