Synthesis of monogalactosyldiacylglycerol (GalDAG) and digalactosyldiacylglycerol (GalGalDAG), the major membrane lipids in cyanobacteria, begins with production of the intermediate precursor monoglucosyldiacylglycerol (GlcDAG), by monoglucosyldiacylglycerol synthase (MGS). In Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 (Synechocystis) this activity is catalyzed by an(More)
The biosynthesis pathway of carotenoids in cyanobacteria is partly described. However, the subcellular localization of individual steps is so far unknown. Carotenoid analysis of different membrane subfractions in Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 shows that "light" plasma membranes have a high carotenoid/protein ratio, when compared to "heavier" plasma membranes or(More)
Kinetics of interaction between the H+-translocating component of the mitochondrial ATPase complex and oligomycin or dicyclohexylcarbodiimide were studied in beef heart submitochondrial particles, and the results suggest that the two inhibitors have different binding sites with respect to the membrane and to F1. Oligomycin seems to be bound to a subunit or(More)
