physiological function
-
Mg-chelatase H subunit affects abscisic acid signaling in stomatal guard cells, but is not an abscisic acid receptor
physiological function
-
the magnesium-protoporphyrin IX chelatase H subunit (CHLH/ABAR) functions as a receptor for abscisic acid in Arabidopsis thaliana. ABAR is a key component connecting the circadian clock with abscisic acid-mediated plant responses to drought. ABAR antagonizes negative abscisic acid signaling regulators WRKYs to derepress abscisic acid-responsive genes

subunit isoform ChlI2 shows ATPase activity, but with lower Vmax and higher Km value than isoform ChlI1. Although it plays a limited role in chlorophyll biosynthesis, it certainly contributes to the assembly of the Mg-chelatase complex

additional information
?
-
-
enzyme is composed of subunits BchI, BchD, BchH. The BchIBchD complex has intrinsic ATPase activity, and addition of BchH greatly increased ATPase activity. This is concentration-dependent and gives sigmoidal kinetics. ATPase activity is about 40fold higher than magnesium chelatase activity and continues despite cessation of magnesium chelation, implying secondary roles for ATP hydrolysis. Porphyrin binding is the rate limiting step in catalysis

generation of transgenic tobacco lines with RNAi silenced expression of the glutamate 1-semialdehyde aminotransferase (GSA) gene does not cause a decrease in the transcript levels after inactivation of HEMA and GSA-expression. Enzyme activity for Mg chelatase is lower in parallel to the loss of chlorophyll and heme content

-
the CHLH gene encoding the H subunit of Mg-chelatase is induced by continuous white, red, far-red or blue light with an initial peak after 24 h light. Mg-chelatase subunit genes CHLI and CHLD and the ferrochelatase genes FC1 and FC2 are not strongly regulated at the level of transcript abundance, but the Mg-chelatase regulator GUN4 has an expression profile almost identical to that observed for CHLH. Transcription of both CHLH and GUN4 is primarily under the control of phytochromes A and B and compromised in the phytochrome-signalling mutants fhy1 and fhy3

enzyme is composed of subunits BchI, BchD, BchH. The BchIBchD complex has intrinsic ATPase activity, and addition of BchH greatly increased ATPase activity. This is concentration-dependent and gives sigmoidal kinetics. ATPase activity is about 40fold higher than magnesium chelatase activity and continues despite cessation of magnesium chelation, implying secondary roles for ATP hydrolysis

Replication of viral DNA is restricted to vascular tissue and the viral vector can transmit to leaves, roots, and the ovule integument from which fibers originate.
