Energy-linked reactions catalyzed by the purified ATPase complex (F0F1) from Rhodospirillum rubrum chromatophores.


1. The isolation of F0F1-ATPase complex from Rhodospirillum rubrum chromatophores by the use of taurodeoxycholate is described. 2. The enzyme preparation contains about 12 polypeptides; five are subunits of the F1 moiety. 3. The ATPase activity of the purified enzyme is dependent on the addition of phospholipids. 4. Km-vales for Mg2+-ATP and Ca2+-ATP are… (More)
