 Title    Amino Acid Substitutions in the D 1 Protein of Photosystem II Affect Q b-Stabilization and Accelerate Turnover of D  
 Abstract    Isogenic strains of Synechococcus PCC 7942 were genetically engineered so that copy I of the gene psbA was mutated at specific sites. These mutations resulted in replacements of Ser 264 by Gly or Ala and of Phe 255 by Tyr or Leu in the D 1 protein. The mutants were resistant to herbicides inhibiting electron transfer in photosystem II. All mutants exhibited alterations in the stability of Q B' as demonstrated by a temperature downshift, to various extents, of the in vivo thermoluminescence emission. Measurements of the light-dependent turnover of D 1 showed a marked decrease in the 11 / 2 of this protein in the mutants as compared to wild-type, under low to medium light intensities. A correlation was found between the degree of pertur­ bation in the Q B" stability and the rate of acceleration in the turnover of D 1. These data pro­ vide a direct evidence for the overlapping binding sites for the plastoquinone B and herbicides in the D 1 protein. In addition these data indicate a close link between Q B" destabilization in reaction center II and the mechanism controlling the light-dependent turnover of D 1. Based on these results and previous work we suggest that destabilization of the semireduced quinone, facilitates a light-induced damage in D 1 which triggers its degradation.

 Title    Isolation and Partial Characterization of an l -Amino Acid Oxidase and of Photosystem II Complexes from the Cyanobacterium Synechococcus PCC 7942  
 Abstract    An L-amino acid oxidase with high specifity for basic L-amino acids was isolated from the cyanobacterium Synechococcus PCC 7942, and the enzyme was partially characterized. This enzyme was compared to the previously described L-amino acid oxidase from Synechococcus
