abstract The blue-green alga Anacystis nidulans (strain L 1402-1) was grown at +37 degrees C in air (0.03 vol% CO2 and in air enriched with 3.0 vol% CO2. The effects of several inhibitors on the activity of aminotransferases, 14CO2 fixation and radioactive photosynthetic products of Anacystis were studied. No serine-pyruvate aminotransferase activity could be found in 10-2 M isonicotinyl hydrazide (INH); under the influence of this inhibitor aspartate and alanine aminotransferase were decreased about 49% respectively 17.6%. Serine-pyruvate and alanine aminotransferase activity decreased to more than 50% in 10-3 M glyoxalbisulfite. The obtained inhibitory effect of 10-4 M HPMS on serine-pyruvate aminotransferase (35%) was stronger than one the other aminotransferases. DCMU (5 x 10-6 M) inhibition on alanine aminotransferase activity was 83.7%. Under the influence of 10-3 M glyoxalbisulfite no 14C-labelled amino acids could be detected after 5 min photosynthesis; 14C-labelling of phosphoenolpyruvate, malate, phosphoglycolate and glycolic acid increased. Isonicotinyl hydrazide (10-2 M) caused in comparison to the control experiment a lower radioactivity in aspartate glutamate and phosphoenolpyruvate. The results are discussed with reference fo the operation of the glycolate pathway and a carboxylation reaction of phosphoenol-pyruvate in the blue-green alga Anacystis nidulans.
