  • Background: Whether channel formation is a general feature of F-ATP synthase dimers across species is unknown. Results: Yeast F-ATP synthase dimers form Ca2+-dependent channels, and the e and g subunits facilitate pore formation in situ through dimerization. Conclusion: F-ATP synthase dimers form the permeability transition pore of yeast. Significance: Ca2+-dependent channel formation is a conserved feature of F-ATP synthases. Purified F-ATP synthase dimers of yeast mitochondria display Ca2… CONTINUE READING
