AbstractFor many bacteria Na+ bioenergetics is important as a link between exergonic and endergonic reactions in the membrane. This article focusses on two primary Na+ pumps in bacteria, the Na+-translocating oxaloacetate decarboxylase ofKlebsiella pneumoniae and the Na+-translocating F1F0 ATPase ofPropionigenium modestum. Oxaloacetate decarboxylase is an essential enzyme of the citrate fermentation pathway and has the additional function to conserve the free energy of decarboxylation by… Expand
Promiscuous archaeal ATP synthase concurrently coupled to Na+ and H+ translocation
TLDR
This work studies the methanogenic archaeon Methanosarcina acetivorans using assays of ATP hydrolysis and ion transport in inverted membrane vesicles, and experimentally demonstrates that the rotary mechanism of its ATP synthase is coupled to the concurrent translocation of both H+ and Na+ across the membrane under physiological conditions.

Phylogenomic analysis identifies a sodium-translocating decarboxylating oxidoreductase in thermotogae
TLDR
It is suggested that the described two operons code together for sodium-translocating decarboxylating oxidoreductases capable of coupling oxidative decar boxylation of alpha-ketoacids with the export of sodium ions, which is a novel type of bioenergetic coupling. Expand
Anaplerotic Pathways in Halomonas elongata: The Role of the Sodium Gradient
TLDR
The results show that the anaplerotic reactions in H. elongata are indeed subject to evolutionary pressures that differ from those faced by other gram-negative bacteria. Expand
Essential ion binding residues for Na+ flow in stator complex of the Vibrio flagellar motor
TLDR
The data indicate that two threonine residues, PomA-T158 and Pom a-T186, together with PomB-D24, are important for Na+ conduction in the Vibrio flagellar motor, which contributes to clarify the mechanism of ion recognition and conversion of ion flow into mechanical force. Expand
Anaplerotic pathways in Halomonas elongata: the role of the sodium gradient
TLDR
The results show that the anaplerotic reactions in H. elongata are indeed subject to different evolutionary pressures than those of other gram-negative bacteria. Expand

TLDR
The unique properties of Na+-NQR are summarized in terms of its redox cofactor composition, electron transfer reactions and a possible mechanism of coupling and pumping. Expand
Proton Translocation and ATP Synthesis by the F o F 1 -ATPase of Purple Bacteria
TLDR
The subunit compositions and construction principles of FoF1ATP synthases of various prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms are very similar and have proven to be particularly useful for elucidating the electrochemical aspects of these organisms. Expand
Ancient systems of sodium/potassium homeostasis as predecessors of membrane bioenergetics
TLDR
A scenario is presented that details how the interplay between several, initially independent sodium pumps might have triggered the evolution of sodium-dependent membrane bioenergetics, followed by the separate emergence of the proton-dependent bioener getics in archaea and bacteria. Expand
Autoinducer-2-Producing Protein LuxS, a Novel Salt- and Chloride-Induced Protein in the Moderately Halophilic Bacterium Halobacillus halophilus
TLDR
Western blot analyses demonstrated a growth phase- and salinity-dependent production of LuxS, a protein involved in the activated methyl cycle and the production of autoinducer-2, which mediates quorum sensing between certain species. Expand
Genetic and Biochemical Analysis of Anaerobic Respiration in Bacteroides fragilis and Its Importance In Vivo
TLDR
Genetics, enzyme activity measurements, and mammalian gut colonization assays are combined to better understand the first committed step in respiration, the transfer of electrons from NADH to quinone. Expand

TLDR
The three Na(+)-translocating enzymes, oxaloacetate decarboxylase of Klebsiella pneumoniae, NADH: ubiquinone oxidoreductase of Vibrio alginolyticus and ATPase (F1F0) of Propionigenium modestum have been isolated and studied with respect to structure and function. Expand
On the mechanism of sodium ion translocation by oxaloacetate decarboxylase of Klebsiella pneumoniae.
TLDR
These results suggest coupling of Na+ translocation to the carboxylation/decar boxylation of the biotin prosthetic group without the requirement for the oxaloacetate/pyruvate interconversion. Expand

TLDR
H ' is the central coupling ion in bacterial energy metabolism, but it is not the only one; halorhodopsin functions as an electrogenic chloride pump in Halobactetr-iiai lialobjiini. Expand
On the mechanism of sodium ion translocation by methylmalonyl-CoA decarboxylase from Veillonella alcalescens.
TLDR
Na+ influx and malonyl-CoA decarboxylation follow a stoichiometry of approximately 2:1, independent of the magnitude of the electrochemical Na+ gradient and are thus highly coupled events. Expand
Energy transduction in the thermophilic anaerobic bacterium Clostridium fervidus is exclusively coupled to sodium ions.
TLDR
Energy transduction at the membrane in C. fervidus is exclusively dependent on a Na+ cycle, demonstrating that secondary amino acid transport uses solely Na+ as coupling ion. Expand
Life by a new decarboxylation‐dependent energy conservation mechanism with Na+ as coupling ion
TLDR
It is concluded that ATP synthesis in P. modestum is driven by a Na+ ion gradient which is generated upon decarboxylation of methylmalonyl‐CoA, and that Na+ functions as the coupling ion. Expand

TLDR
Results are consistent with the Vitreoscilla cytochrome o being a redox-driven Na+ pump. Expand
Na+/H+ antiporters.
TLDR
In neither prokaryotes nor eukaryotes systems is there yet incontrovertible evidence that a specific protein carrier, that catalyzes Na+/H+ antiport, is actually responsible for any of the multitude of effects attributed to such antiporters. Expand
A new sodium‐transport system energized by the decarboxylation of oxaloacetate
TLDR
The results described here agree with the hypothesis that an additional function of the decarboxylase could be the transport of Na’ through the membrane just as ATP energy is used to drive Na' and K’ transport by the adenosintriphosphatase. Expand
The biotin-dependent sodium ion pump glutaconyl-CoA decarboxylase from Fusobacterium nucleatum (subsp. nucleatum)
TLDR
Membrane preparations of Fusobacterium nucleatum grown on glutamate contain glutaconyl-CoA decarboxylase at a high specific activity and was stimulated up to 3-fold by phospholipids, while the gram-positive bacteria Acidaminococcus fermentans and Clostridium symbiosum have a lower apparent Km for Na+ and were not stimulated by phosphorus.
