PhysiologyCleaves an 8-16 residue peptide from the C-terminus of the D1 protein of the photosystem complex, a process that is essential for the assembly of the tetranuclear manganese cluster that functions as the site of photosynthetic oxidation of water, the source of electrons for the biosynthesis of organic compounds in the chloroplast (Anbudurai et al., 1994; Taguchi et al., 1995).
