In these organisms, nitrogen fixation is confined to the photoperiod and occurs simultaneously with oxygenic photosynthesis. Nitrogenase, the enzyme responsible for biological N2 fixation, is irreversibly inhibited by oxygen in vitro. How nitrogenase is protected from damage by photosynthetically produced O2 was once an enigma. Using fast repetition rate fluorometry and fluorescence kinetic microscopy, we show that there is both temporal and spatial segregation of N2 fixation and photosynthesis within the photoperiod. Linear photosynthetic electron transport protects nitrogenase by reducing photosynthetically evolved O2 in photosystem I (PSI). We postulate that in the early evolutionary phase of oxygenic photosynthesis, nitrogenase served as an electron acceptor for anaerobic heterotrophic metabolism and that PSI was favored by selection because it provided a micro-anaerobic environment for N2 Þxation in cyanobacteria</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T17:46:58Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Science 294 (2001), pp. 1534-1537</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:issued>2001</dcterms:issued> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Küpper, Hendrik</dc:creator> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Falkowski, Paul</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
