The degradation of chlorophyll to pheophorbide has been proposed to occur in plant products by two pathways, through pheophytin as an intermediate or through chlorophyllide as an intermediate .
This acid still must equilibrate into the cucumbers to degrade their chlorophyll molecules, but the acidified brines would likely result in less product proceeding through the enzymatic process to form chlorophyllide before acid reactions became more favorable.
Assessment of production efficiency, physicochemical properties and storage stability of spray-dried chlorophyllide
, a natural food colourant, using gum Arabic, maltodextrin and soy protein isolate-based carrier systems.
Ethylene acts by converting chlorophyll a and b in chlorophyllide
and phytol, resulting in loss of green color usually at concentration varying from 1 to 10[micro]L [L.sup.-1] (FERRANTE & FRANCINI, 2004).

Bombyx mori midgut membrane protein P252 which binds to Cry1A of Bacillus thuringiensis is a Chlorophyllide
binding protein and its resulting complex has antimicrobial activity.
POR: This is protochlorophyllide oxido reductase, which is involved in the conversion of protochlorophyllide to chlorophyllide
A chlorophyll-deficient rice mutant with impaired chlorophyllide esterification in chlorophyll biosynthesis.
The chlorophyllase that catalyzes the production of chlorophyllide from chlorophyll at the first step of chlorophyll degradation is also the key enzyme that affects the chlorophyll contents in higher plants (Fernandez-Lopez et al., 1992; Tsuchiya et al., 1999; Harpaz-Saad et al., 2007).
When a chlorophyll molecule breaks down, chlorophyllides
will be produced and after opening prophyrin rings are moved to vacuole .
Chlorophyll breakdown that eventually leads to colorless products results from the reduction of chlorophyll molecules to chlorophyllides
prompted by chlorophyllases activity.
