  Domain Name: Mg_chelatase
Magnesium chelatase, subunit ChlI. Magnesium-chelatase is a three-component enzyme that catalyzes the insertion of Mg2+ into protoporphyrin IX. This is the first unique step in the synthesis of (bacterio)chlorophyll. Due to this, it is thought that Mg-chelatase has an important role in channelling inter- mediates into the (bacterio)chlorophyll branch in response to conditions suitable for photosynthetic growth. ChlI and BchD have molecular weight between 38-42 kDa.
