Salicylhydroxamic acid (SHAM) inhibits O2 photoreduction which protects nitrogenase activity in the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. RF-1


Synechococcus sp. RF-1, a unicellular N2-fixing cyanobacterium, can grow photosynthetically and diazotrophically in continuous light. How the organism protects its nitrogenase from damage by oxygen is unclear. In cyanobacerial cells, electron transport carriers associated with photosynthesis and respiration are all on the thylakoid membranes and share some… (More)
