Eukaryotic V1VO-ATPases hydrolyze ATP in the V1 domain coupled to ion pumping in VO. A unique mode of regulation of V-ATPases is the reversible disassembly of V1 and VO, which reduces ATPase activity and causes silencing of ion conduction. The subunits D and F are proposed to be key in these enzymatic processes. Here, we describe the structures of two(More)
The subunit ε of bacterial F(1)F(O) ATP synthases plays an important regulatory role in coupling and catalysis via conformational transitions of its C-terminal domain. Here we present the first low-resolution solution structure of ε of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtε) F(1)F(O) ATP synthase and the nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) structure of its C-terminal(More)
Human immunodeficiency viruses (HIV) hide themselves in macrophages at the early stage of infection. Delivering drug in a sustained manner from polymeric nanoparticles in those cells could control the disease effectively. The study was intended to develop poly(d,l-lactic-co-glycolic acid)-based nanoparticles containing didanosine and to observe their uptake(More)
Subunit F of V-ATPases is proposed to undergo structural alterations during catalysis and reversible dissociation from the V1VO complex. Recently, we determined the low resolution structure of F from Saccharomyces cerevisiae V-ATPase, showing an N-terminal egg shape, connected to a C-terminal hook-like segment via a linker region. To understand the(More)
In bacteria, an ensemble of alkyl hydroperoxide reductase subunits C (AhpC) and F (AhpF) is responsible for scavenging H2O2. AhpC donates electrons for the reduction of H2O2, which are provided after NADH oxidation by AhpF. The latter contains an N-terminal domain (NTD), catalyzing the electron transfer from NADH via a FAD of the C-terminal domain (CTD)(More)
Vacuolar ATPases use the energy derived from ATP hydrolysis, catalyzed in the A(3)B(3) sector of the V(1) ATPase to pump protons via the membrane-embedded V(O) sector. The energy coupling between the two sectors occurs via the so-called central stalk, to which subunit F does belong. Here we present the first low resolution structure of recombinant subunit F(More)
Invasion of the erythrocyte by the invasive form of the malaria parasite, the merozoite, is a complex process involving numerous parasite proteins. The reticulocyte-binding protein homologues (RH) family of merozoite proteins has been previously shown to play an important role in the invasion process. Previously, it has been shown that the RH proteins of(More)
V-ATPases are very complex multi-subunit enzymes which function as proton-pumping rotary nanomotors. The rotary and coupling subunit F (F(1-94)) was crystallized by the hanging-drop vapour-diffusion method. The native crystals diffracted to a resolution of 2.64 Å and belonged to space group C222(1), with unit-cell parameters a = 47.21, b = 160.26, c =(More)
