 Title    Properties of Membrane Fractions Prepared by Chromatophore-Liposome Fusion  
 Abstract    Intracytoplasmic membrane vesicles (chromatophores) isolated from Rhodopseudomonas capsulata cells were fused with liposom es by a pH transition procedure. Vesicles o f lower density and higher lipid contents and larger diam eter than chrom atophores were obtained. Similar results were observed by Ca2+ induced fusion and by the freeze-thawing method. Respiratory and light-induced electron transport were m easured in chrom atophores and fused vesicles. Light-induced reaction center bleaching was observed in all types o f vesicles, whereas repiratory electron transport was substantially dim inished by lipid incorporation. U biquinone 10 restored to some extent respiratory electron transport and oxidative phosphorylation and it m odified the photophosphorylation kinetics under continuous light. Electrochrom ic carotenoid band-shift and the 9-aminoacridine fluorescence quenching indicate that the capacity o f the fused vesicles to maintain an electrochemical proton gradient has not been substantially dim inished. From the kinetics o f 9-aminoacridine quenching an increased K+-perm eability seem s to be apparent.
