F0 "proton channel" of rat liver mitochondria. Rapid purification of a functional complex and a study of its interaction with the unique probe diethylstilbestrol.


The F0 portion of the rat liver mitochondrial ATP synthase (F0F1-ATPase) has been purified by a rapid, high yield procedure. F0 is selectively extracted from inner membrane vesicles with 3-[(3-cholamidopropyl)dimethylammonio]-1-propanesulfonate (CHAPS) after prior treatment of the vesicles with guanidine HCl to remove F1. The resultant F0 is functional in… (More)
