 Title    Modification of Histidine Residues of Photosystem II by Diethyl Pyrocarbonate Inhibits the Electron Transfer between the Primary (QA) and Secondary (QB) Quinone Acceptors  
 Abstract    The effect o f diethyl pyrocarbonate (D EPC) on the photosynthetic electron transport was investigated in isolated spinach thylakoids by partial electron transport rate and thermolumi­ nescence measurements. Incubation o f thylakoids at pH 6.5 with 5 mM DEPC for 15 min re­ sulted in a considerable inhibition o f electron transport from water to dichlorophenolindo-phenol. The inhibition was only partially releaved by addition o f the donor, diphenylcarbazide indicating the effect o f DEPC both on the donor and acceptor sides o f PS II. In the thermolu­ minescence glow curve DEPC-treatm ent abolished the B band (S2Q B~ radiative charge recom ­ bination) at 30 °C with a concom itant appearance o f the Q band (S2QA~ charge recombina­ tion) at 10 °C. This suggests that in isolated thylakoids possessing an active water-splitting sys­ tem DEPC affects the electron transfer from QA to QB but does not inhibit the electron transport from manganese to QA during the S t—>S2 transition o f the water-splitting system. At the acceptor side o f PS II the targets o f DEPC are probably the histidines which are coordinat­ ed to the non-hem e iron. Illumination o f thylakoids at -8 0 °C following DEPC addition after two preflashes at 5 °C resulted in the replacement o f the A (A T) thermoluminescence band at -3 0 °C with a band appearing at -1 5 °C. This observation can be explained by the effect o f DEPC on a donor side histidine com ponent participating in the generation o f the A (A T) band. Consequently, in the interpretation o f results obtained by DEPC treatment o f PS II, both the donor and acceptor side effects o f DEPC should be considered.

 Title    The Chemical Evolution o f a Nitrogenase Model, XXII. Reduction of Acetylene with Catalysts Derived from Molybdate, Homocitric Acid and N-M ethylimidazole and a Proposal Concerning the Active Site of Functional Azotobacter Nitrogenases  
 Abstract    Based on model experiments it is suggested that the reduction o f substrates by nitrogenase occurs at a m ononuclear site containing molybdenum, homocitrate and the imidazole com ponent of his-442 o f the apoenzyme, generated from the FeMo-co by a reversible dissociation of the Fe7S8 unit from the M oFe7S8 cluster in a redox-linked process.

 Title    Gamma-Radiolysis of Aqueous Solution of Histidine  
 Abstract    The dependence of Gi(— M) values of histidine on the concentration of irradiated 10-4 —10-1 m solutions, pH and the presence of 0 2 , N20 and sec-butyl alcohol was investigated. In oxygen-free medium the maximum radiation sensitivity of histidine was found at pH 5 — 8 ; in oxygenated solutions it was shifted to the 6 — 11 pH range. The formation of radiation products was also studied. The course of radiation decomposition of histidine depends on the presence of oxygen and on the pH of irradiated solution.
