  • Abstract 1. 1. The importance of the PEPCK reaction in the anaerobic energy metabolism of the marine polychaetes Arenicola marina and Nereis virens was investigated. 2. 2. By the administration of 3-MPA, a specific inhibitor of PEPCK, it could be proved that PEPCK catalyzes the obligate CO2-fixation in the anaerobic metabolism. 3. 3. Under the influence of the drug the anaerobic formation of succinate, acetate and propionate is clearly reduced in both species. 4. 4. However, in N. virens as… CONTINUE READING
