Bacterial Na(+)-ATP synthase has an undecameric rotor.

Abstract

Synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) by the F(1)F(0) ATP synthase involves a membrane-embedded rotary engine, the F(0) domain, which drives the extra-membranous catalytic F(1) domain. The F(0) domain consists of subunits a(1)b(2) and a cylindrical rotor assembled from 9-14 alpha-helical hairpin-shaped c-subunits. According to structural analyses… (More)
