 Title    Der Einfluß von Cycloheximid und Chloramphenicol auf die Biosynthese der Photosynthese-Pigmente in Cyanophora paradoxa Korsch I. Photosynthetische Sauerstoffproduktion Photosynthetic O xygen Evolution  
 Abstract    The Influence o f C yclohexim ide and C hloram phenicol on the B iosynthesis o f the Photosynthetic P igm ents in Cyanophora paradoxa I. It is not clear whether an endocytobiont is able to develop during a long evolution tim e only to an organelle like cell structure (defect m utant) with a high degree of m etabolic dependency or also to a perfect cell organelle with genetical dependency to the host nucleus (intercom partm ental translocation of proteins an d /o r gene transfer) in the sense of the Serial Endocytobiosis Hypothesis (SEH). Cyanocyta korschokoffiana, the endocyanelle of C. paradoxa, seems to be a very suitable object to answer this question. Therefore we have studied the influence o f the translation inhibitors cycloheximide (CHI) and chloramphenicol (CA) on the biosynthetic behaviour of this cyanobacterial endocytobiont regarding the photosynthetic oxygen during 20 h developing and incubation time. After dilution with fresh culture m edium the oxygen evolution of the control culture remains nearly constant, if it is related to the phycocyanin content, whereas it increases slowly to a constant level relating to the chlorophyll content (nearly 140-150% o f the starting activity). CHI and CA show a rapid effect on the oxygen evolution. At the first 8 -10 h the oxygen evolution of cultures treated with CA are hardly dim inished and rem ain m ore or less constant with regard to the starting activity, but that of cultures treated with CHI decreases strongly. After 24 h the CHI treated flagellate is photosynthetically inactive and far-reaching destroyed (microscopic observations), indicating that CHI has beside the inhibition effects on protein synthesis also secondary effects on the stability o f m em branes o f C. paradoxa.
