Direct interaction of ferredoxin:NADP+ oxidoreductase (FNR) with thylakoid membranes was postulated as a part of the cyclic electron flow mechanism. In vitro binding of FNR to digalactosyldiacylglycerol and monogalactosyldiacylglycerol membranes was also shown. In this paper we deal with the latter interaction in more detail describing the effect for two FNR forms of Synechocystis PCC 6803. The so-called short FNR (sFNR) is homologous to FNR from higher plant chloroplasts. The long FNR (lFNR) form contains an additional domain, responsible for the interaction with phycobilisomes. We compare the binding of both sFNR and lFNR forms to native and non-native lipids. We also include factors which could modulate this process: pH change, temperature change, presence of ferredoxin, NADP+ and NADPH and heavy metals. For the lFNR, we also include phycobilisomes as a modulating factor. The membrane binding is generally faster at lower pH. The sFNR was binding faster than lFNR. Ferredoxin isoforms with higher midpoint potential, as well as NADPH and NADP+, weakened the binding. Charged lipids and high phosphate promoted the binding. Heavy metal ions decreased the rate of membrane binding only when FNR was preincubated with them before injection beneath the monolayer. FNR binding was limited to surface lipid groups and did not influence hydrophobic chain packing. Taken together, FNR interaction with lipids appears to be non-specific, with an electrostatic component. This suggests that the direct FNR interaction with lipids is most likely not a factor in directing electron transfer, but should be taken into account during in vitro studies.
