1-Ethyl-3-[3-(dimethylamino)propyl]carbodiimide (EDC), a water-soluble carbodiimide, inhibited ECF1-F0 ATPase activity and proton translocation through F0 when reacted with Escherichia coli membrane vesicles. The site of modification was found to be in subunit c of the F0 portion of the enzyme but did not involve Asp-61, the site labeled by the hydrophobic(More)
Reaction of the ATPase of Escherichia coli (ECF1) with 1-ethyl-3-[3-(dimethylamino)propyl]carbodiimide (EDC) resulted in a time- and concentration-dependent inhibition of ATPase activity. The inactivation was greatly reduced by Mg2+ ions. Close to 13 mol of EDC per mol of ECF1 was incorporated into the enzyme at 95% inhibition of ATPase activity. Two-thirds(More)
The amphipathic detergent lauryldimethylamine oxide (LDAO) stimulated ATP hydrolytic activity of Escherichia coli membranes and isolated ECF1 and ECF1-F0 ATPase complexes in a concentration-dependent manner. The enzyme was maximally activated 3-fold in membranes and 5-6-fold for isolated ECF1 or the ECF1-F0 complex. The maximal specific activity of(More)
