The result is a general increase in concentration of the more recalcitrant compounds, commonly exceeding 80% of the total, with slower rates of metabolism and turnover. These recalcitrant compounds, however, are metabolized at rates slowed and regulated in large part by their molecular complexity and bonding structure. In every detailed annual organic carbon budget of lake and river ecosystems, organic matter generated by phytoplankton will not support all of the heterotrophic metabolism of the ecosystem.

The inhibition of enzymes occurs in a classical noncompetitive manner, in which the inhibitor, polyphenol, and substrate bind simultaneously to the enzyme. Furthermore, dissolved humic substances can complex by peptidization and alter biological susceptibility to enzymatic hydrolysis. , 37,381. An important ecosystem aspect is that these protein or enzyme complexes can be stored in an inactivated state for long periods, transported within the ecosystems, and later reactivated by partial photolytic cleavage by UVR [1,34,35].

10 ROBERT G. WETZEL In providing a synthesis of the ramifications of UV on aquatic ecosystems, a key component is the simultaneous importance of DOM in regulating the distribution and attenuation of UVR as well as the effects that UV has both directly and indirectly on the metabolism, growth, reproductive, and production efficacy of biota. Because these effects of UV are so interactive and coupled, it is difficult to separate them without some redundancy. Several points can be characterized, however, in summary of some of the more detailed discussions in subsequent chapters.
