Abstract:Two monoclonal anti-diuron antibodies were generated that bind to diuron with an extremely low equilibrium dissociation constant. The antibodies prevented and restored in vitro and in vivo the diuron-dependent inhibition of photosynthesis. In isolated thylakoids prepared from spinach leaves (Spinacia oleracea L.) the diuron-inhibited Hill reaction was reconstituted immediately after the addition of the monoclonal antibodies. The antibodies also restored the diuron-dependent inhibition of the photosynthetic oxygen evolution of the cell wall-deficient mutant cw15 of the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii Dangeard.
