This paper describes specific Cu2+-catalyzed oxidative cleavage of alpha and beta subunits of Na,K-ATPase at the extracellular surface. Incubation of right side-out renal microsomal vesicles with Cu2+ ions, ascorbate, and H2O2 produces two major cleavages of the alpha subunit within the extracellular loop between trans-membrane segments M7 and M8 and L7/8.(More)
This chapter describes contributions of transition metal-catalyzed oxidative cleavage of Na+,K+-ATPase to our understanding of structure-function relations. In the presence of ascorbate/H2O2, specific cleavages are catalyzed by the bound metal and because more than one peptide bond close to the metal can be cleaved, this technique reveals proximity of the(More)
