At concentrations of 100–200 μM, ethoxyzolamide, a lipophilic inhibitor of carbonic anhydrase, considerably (by 60%) inhibited light-induced CO2-dependent oxygen evolution in pea protoplasts at the optimum concentration of inorganic carbon (100 μM CO2) in the medium. At the same concentrations of the inhibitor, electron transport in isolated pea thylakoids was inhibited only by 6–9%. Acetazolamide, a water-soluble inhibitor of carbonic anhydrase, affected neither the rate of CO2-dependent O2evolution in protoplasts nor electron transport in thylakoid membranes. A light-dependent proton uptake by protoplasts was demonstrated. At pH 7.2, the induction kinetics and the rate of proton uptake were similar to those for CO2-dependent O2evolution. The rate of proton uptake was decreased twofold by 1 mM acetazolamide. This fact agrees with the notion that a membrane-bound carbonic anhydrase is operative in the plasma membrane of higher plant cells. A mechanism of its functioning is suggested. Possible functions of carbonic anhydrases in the cells of C3-plants are discussed.
