(Na/ + K+)ATPase has one functioning phosphorylation site per alpha subunit.

Abstract

(Na+ + K+)ATPase contains two different subunits, a catalytic subunit (alpha) and a subunit with uncertain function (beta). The enzyme binds ATP, ouabain and vanadate, and can be phosphorylated by ATP as well as by inorganic phosphate. From the previously reported maximal binding and phosphorylation capacities of 3.5--4.3 nmol P per mg protein (based on… (More)
