Vacuolar proton-translocating ATPases are composed of a complex of integral membrane proteins, the Vo sector, attached to a complex of peripheral membrane proteins, the V1 sector. We have examined the early steps in biosynthesis of the yeast vacuolar ATPase by biosynthetically labeling wild-type and mutant cells for varied pulse and chase times and immunoprecipitating fully and partially assembled complexes under nondenaturing conditions. In wild-type cells, several V1 subunits and the 100-kDa…

The RAVE Complex Is Essential for Stable Assembly of the Yeast V-ATPase*
Evidence supporting a role for RAVE in reassembly of the V-ATPase is provided but also an essential role in V- ATPase assembly under other conditions is demonstrated.
Assembly and Regulation of the Yeast Vacuolar H+-ATPase
This review focuses on characterization of the yeast V-ATPase stalk subunits, which form the interface between V1 and V0, potential mechanisms of silencing ATP hydrolytic activity in disassembled V1 sectors, and the structure and function of RAVE, a recently discovered complex that regulates V- ATPase assembly.
RAVE Is Essential for the Efficient Assembly of the C Subunit with the Vacuolar H+-ATPase*
Evidence is provided for an interaction between the RAVE complex and V1 subunit C, another subunit that has been assigned to the peripheral stalk that is unique in that it is released from both V1 and V0 sectors during disassembly, suggesting that sub unit C may control the regulated assembly of the V-ATPase.
Identification of a Domain in the Vo Subunit d That Is Critical for Coupling of the Yeast Vacuolar Proton-translocating ATPase*
By generating mutations, it is shown that subunit d couples ATP hydrolysis and proton transport and the significance of domain 3 for vacuolar proton-translocating ATPase function are discussed.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae Vacuolar H+-ATPase Regulation by Disassembly and Reassembly: One Structure and Multiple Signals
The mechanisms governing reversible disassembly in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae are reported on, keeping in perspective the present understanding of the V-ATPase architecture and its alignment with the cellular processes and signals involved.
Mutational Analysis of the Stator Subunit E of the Yeast V-ATPase*
Results indicated communication between subunit E and the catalytic sites at the A3B3 hexamer and suggest potential regulatory roles for the carboxyl end of subunits E within the V-ATPase complex.
Voa1p functions in V-ATPase assembly in the yeast endoplasmic reticulum.
A fifth V(0) assembly factor is discovered, Voa1p (YGR106C); an endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-localized integral membrane glycoprotein whose role was revealed in cells expressing an ER retrieval-deficient form of the V-ATPase assembly factor Vma21p (Vma 21pQQ).
Role of Vma21p in assembly and transport of the yeast vacuolar ATPase.
It is concluded that Vma21p is not involved in regulating the interaction between V0 and V1 sectors, but that it has a crucial role in coordinating the assembly of V0 subunits and in escorting the assembled V0 complex into ER-derived transport vesicles.
Reconstitution in Vitro of V1 Complex of Thermus thermophilus V-ATPase Revealed That ATP Binding to the A Subunit Is Crucial for V1 Formation*
Kinetic analysis of assembly of the A and B monomers into the A1B1 heterodimer using fluorescence resonance energy transfer indicated that the A subunit binds ATP prior to binding the B subunit, suggesting that ATP binding-dependent interaction between the A or B subunits is a crucial step of assembly into V1 complex.
Interaction between the yeast RAVE complex and Vph1-containing Vo sectors is a central glucose-sensitive interaction required for V-ATPase reassembly
It is demonstrated here that RAVE recruitment to the membrane does not require an interaction with V1, and glucose-dependent RAVE localization to the vacuolar membrane required only intact Vo complexes containing the Vph1 subunit, suggesting that the RAVE-Vo interaction is glucose-dependent.


Partial assembly of the yeast vacuolar H(+)-ATPase in mutants lacking one subunit of the enzyme.
Results indicate that the peripheral (V1) sector and integral membrane sectors of the yeast vacuolar H(+)-ATPase can assemble independently and can assemble into a complex in the absence of the 42-kDa peripheral subunit.
Subunit composition, biosynthesis, and assembly of the yeast vacuolar proton-translocating ATPase
Initial results suggest that the peripheral and integral membrane subunits may be independently assembled in the vacuolar H+-ATPase complex and may be part of the final enzyme complex.

Failure to lower the pH in the vacuolar system of yeast, and probably other eukaryotic cells, is lethal and the mutants may survive only if a low external pH allows for this acidification by fluid-phase endocytosis.
Reconstitution in Vitro of the V1 Complex from the Yeast Vacuolar Proton-translocating ATPase
Using the native gel technique for examining subcomplexes of the V-ATPase V1 sector, an in vitro reconstitution assay is developed and an assembly pathway whose steps reflect the catalytic mechanism of the Boyer binding-change model is considered.
Mutational analysis of yeast vacuolar H(+)-ATPase.
It is concluded that of all the ATPase subunits only the proteolipid is assembled independently and it serves as a template for the assembly of the other subunits.
Structure, function and regulation of the vacuolar (H+)-ATPase.
Several mechanisms have been implicated in the regulation of vacuolar acidification in vivo, including control of pump density, regulation of assembly of V1 and V0 domains, disulfide bond formation, activator or inhibitor proteins, and regulation of counterion conductance.
Vma21p is a yeast membrane protein retained in the endoplasmic reticulum by a di-lysine motif and is required for the assembly of the vacuolar H(+)-ATPase complex.
It is suggested that Vma21p is required for assembly of the integral membrane sector of the V-ATPase in the endoplasmic reticulum and that the unassembled 100-kDa integral membrane subunit present in delta vma21 cells is rapidly degraded by nonvacuolar proteases.
VMA12 Encodes a Yeast Endoplasmic Reticulum Protein Required for Vacuolar H+-ATPase Assembly*
Data indicate that Vma12p functions in the ER after the insertion of V0subunits into the ER membrane, and that assembly is required for the stability of the V0 subunits and their transport as a complex out of this compartment.
Wild-type and Mutant Vacuolar Membranes Support pH-dependent Reassembly of the Yeast Vacuolar H+-ATPase in Vitro*
The results indicate that previously assembled Vo complexes are capable of inducing assembly of the peripheral sub units, both with each other and with the membrane subunits, and of activating the ATPase activity that resides in the peripheralSubunits in a pH-dependent manner.
