[Nitrogenase inhibitor]

Yoram,
      Well, oxygen (O2) would inhibit nitrogenase without inhibiting
respiration.  
      Or how about acetylene?  That's the only two things I can think of
offhand, but can't say whether either of them would definitely work.

Greetings Netters
I am looking for a way to inhibit electron flow to Nitrogenase in vivo
(in Cyanobacteria). Someone suggested Carbon Monoxide but this will
inhibit respiration as well, any ideas?
Thanks (and happy new year) Yoarm
