Critical evaluation of the one- versus the two-channel model for the operation of the ATP synthase's F(o) motor.

Abstract

The mechanism of converting an electrochemical gradient of protons or Na(+) ions across the membrane into rotational torque by the F(o) motor of the ATP synthase has been described by a two-channel model or by a one-channel model. Experimental evidence obtained with the F(o) motor from the Propionigenium modestum ATP synthase is described which is in… (More)
