Table 2 Enhancement of ketone reduction in Synechococcus by inhibition of the Calvin cycle

From: Reduction of exogenous ketones depends upon NADPH generated photosynthetically in cells of the cyanobacterium Synechococcus PCC 7942

  Inhibitor Concentration (mM) Yield of ketone reduction (%)
Experiment 1 None - 34 (1.00)*
  IAM 0.1 43 (1.26)*
  IAM 1 52 (1.53)*
  IAA 0.1 39 (1.15)*
  IAA 1 61 (1.49)*
Experiment 2 None - 40 (1.00)*
  D,L-glyceraldehyde 10 57 (1.43)*
  5'-AMP 5 59 (1.48)*
  1. TFA: 2 mg, Cell suspension of Synechococcus: 20 mL, 13.4 μmol photons m-2·s-1, 25°C, 12 h
  2. Inhibitors were added at the beginning of the incubation period.
  3. *Values in parentheses are relative to the yield without inhibitor.
