Topological and functional aspects of the proton conductor, F\(_0\), of the Escherichia coli ATP-synthase

  • The isolated H\(^+\) conductor, F\(_0\) , of the Escherichia co1i ATP-synthase consists of three subunits, a, b, and c. H\(^+\) -permeable liposomes can be reconstit~ted with F\(_0\) and lipids; addition of F\(_1\)-ATPase reconstitutes a functional ATP-synthase. Mutants with altered or misslng F\(_0\) subunits are defective in H\(^+\) conduction. Thus, all three subunits are necessary for the expression of H\(^+\) conduction. The subunits a and b contain binding sites for F\(_1\)• Computer calculations, cross-links, membrane-permeatingThe isolated H\(^+\) conductor, F\(_0\) , of the Escherichia co1i ATP-synthase consists of three subunits, a, b, and c.
