Soll, Jürgen and Schultz, Gernot (1981): Phytol synthesis from geranylgeraniol in spinach chloroplasts. In: Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications, Vol. 99, No. 3: pp. 907-912 [PDF, 332kB]


The reduction of /2-14C/-geranylgeranylpyrophosphate to phytylpyrophosphosphate is shown for the first time in chloroplasts. The esterification of exogenous /2-14C/-geranylgeranylpyrophosphate with endogenous chlorophyllide and the stepwise reduction of the pigment bound geranylgeraniol to phytol was also proved for spinach chloroplasts for the first time.
