Proposed route of chlorophyll degradation. Chlorophyll a is hydrolyzed by chlase to from chlorophyllide and phytol. Also, chlorophyll is released of Mg by Mg-dechelatase. Chlase, chlorophyllase; SGR, stay-green; PPH, pheophytinase; PAO, pheophorbide a oxygenase; RCCR, red chlorophyll catabolite reductase; pFCC, primary fluorescent chlorophyll catabolites; NCC, nonfluorescent chlorophyll catabolite.
