 Title    Diphenyl Ether Herbicides, a Tool to Elucidate the Mechanism of Photophosphorylation  
 Abstract    At least two different classes of A DP binding sites on chloroplast coupling factor are de­ scribed in the literature. High-affinity sites are assumed to entail regulatory functions while low-affinity sites are involved in catalysis. Diphenyl ether herbicides, acting as energy transfer inhibitors, interfere with nucleotide ex­ change on both categories of A D P binding sites. Their inhibitory potency varies depending on their substitution. We found that each diphenyl ether assayed revealed identical / 50 values for inhibition of nucleotide interaction with both classes of binding sites. We show here that diphenyl ether inhibition of energytransfer is primary based upon the interference with A DP binding to high-affinity binding sites. Thereby the control of proton permeability through the coupling factor complex is affected. Moreover, we found that the three ß-subunits are not absolutely fixed in one conformational state: After covalently block­ ing the high-affinity site by an azido-label, a new ß-subunit.
