The greatest incorporation of exogenous 14C-Chla (chlorophyll) a into Chlb in homogenized green barley leaves is observed when dark incubation is carried out for 16 h at 37.degree. C. Addition of oxidized NADP stimulated the incorporation. Although exogenous 14C-Chlb was introduced in various ways and with 2- to 4-fold excess over unlabeled Chla in the presence of cofactors, Chlb was not transformed into Chla.
