Phenolic compounds are toxic to many organisms in that they may affect the energy production in cells by inhibition of the electron transport or by destroying the electrochemical proton gradient built up across membranes. This latter mode of toxic action is commonly referred to as uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation or photophosphorylation. In this study, the relationship between uncoupling activity, total concentration, and speciation in the photosynthetic membrane (chromatophores) of the… CONTINUE READING
