Abstract

Addition of BAS 13-338 (4-chloro-5-dim ethylam ino-2-phenyl-3(2H)-pyridazinone) to a suspension of chloroplast thylakoids caused an increase in the I level of chlorophyll fluorescence induction without affecting the F0 level and with a slight decrease in the Fmax level in a manner similar to the addition of DCMU to a thylakoid suspension. A ddition of BAS 13-338 also inhibited the rate of Hill reaction H2O → dichlorophenol indophenol with 50% inhibition occurring at about 10 µm BAS 13-338. The inhibition was not reversed by diphenyl carbazide used as an artificial electron donor to photosystem II. These results suggest that the site of inhibition by BAS 13-338 is between Q (next to the primary electron acceptor) and plastoquinone. When the plants were grown in the presence of sublethal dose of BAS 13-338, the following changes were noted in the thylakoids of the treated plants as com pared to the thylakoids isolated from the control plants: The F0 and the norm alized variable fluorescence (ΔF/F0) levels increased, chlorophyll a/ b ratio decreased, chlorophyll/P700 ratio increased. Furthermore, the rate of photosystem II electron transport both under saturated intensity and the limiting intensity of illumination increased, and the ratio of plastoquinone to Q decreased. These observations have been interpreted as due to an increase in the ratio of photosystem II to photosystem I inplants grown in the presence of BAS 13-338.
