Abstract

The effects of exogenous glucose on the rates of alternative pathways of photosystem II (PSII)-independent electron flow to PSI and of dark respiration in Synechocystis sp. 6803 cells were studied. The presence of glucose was shown to accelerate the electron flow to P700+, the PSI primary electron donor oxidized with Far-red light (FRL), which excites specifically only PSI. An increase in the glucose concentration was accompanied by a further activation of electron flow to PSI, which was supported by the dark donation of reducing equivalents to the electron transport chain. An increase in the external glucose concentration resulted also in the disappearance of lag-phase in the kinetics of P700+ reduction, which was observed in the cells incubated without glucose after FRL switching off. A similarity of nonphotochemical processes of electron transfer to PSI in cyanobacteria and higher plants was supposed, basing on the earlier observed fact of the occurrence of such lagphase in higher plants and its dependence on the exhausting of stromal reductants in the light. Acceleration of dark electron flow to PSI in the presence of glucose, a major respiratory substrate, may indicate the coupling between nonphotochemical processes in the photosynthetic and respiratory chains of electron transport in cyanobacterial cells. A close correlation between photosynthesis and respiration in cyanobacterial cells is also confirmed by a sharp acceleration of respiration with an increase in the glucose concentration in medium.
