Abstract : It was investigated whether monochromatic light beyond 700 millimicrons can bring about light dependent glucose uptake in the absence of O2 and CO2. The effects of DCMU and antimycin A on photoassimilation of glucose were studied. Glucose assimilation proceeds at a high rate even beyond 700 millimicrons. It is inhibited only about 30% by DCMU at a concentration where photosynthesis is completely inhibited. Antimucin A inhibits to 70% where photosynthesis is hardly effected. These results are strong evidence for the existance of cyclic photophosphorylation in vivo. (Author)
