Chlorophyll is the light harvesting molecule for many photosynthetic organisms. As a result, chlorophyll is an extremely important molecule, directly or indirectly, to nearly all life. The production of chlorophyll involves a long and complex pathway. The conversion of protochlorophyllide to chlorophyllide is one of the final steps in chlorophyll biosynthesis. Some of the factors affecting the regulation of this process were the focus of this project.
