F1-ATPase: a highly efficient rotary ATP machine.
A single molecule of F1-ATPase is by itself a rotary motor in which a central subunit, gamma, rotates against a surrounding stator cylinder made of alpha 3 beta 3 hexamer. Driven by the three beta
Chemo-Mechanical Coupling in the Rotary Molecular Motor F1-ATPase
TLDR
F1-ATPase is a molecular motor in which the central γ subunit rotates inside the cylinder made of α3β3 subunits that is coupled to the chemical reactions in the three catalytic sites: binding/release of ATP, ADP, and phosphate, and hydrolysis/synthesis of ATP.
Asymmetry in the F1-ATPase and its implications for the rotational cycle.
Rotation of F1-ATPase: how an ATP-driven molecular machine may work.
TLDR
A toy model of F1-ATPase is introduced and its free-energy diagrams discussed to possibly answer two related questions, How is free energy obtained by ATP hydrolysis converted to the mechanical work of rotation, and how is mechanical work done on F1 converted to free energy to produce ATP.
A rotary molecular motor that can work at near 100% efficiency.
TLDR
In vitro, it is confirmed in vitro that F1 indeed does ca.
F1-ATPase rotates by an asymmetric, sequential mechanism using all three catalytic subunits
TLDR
It is shown that hybrid F1 containing one or two mutant β subunits with altered catalytic kinetics rotates in an asymmetric stepwise fashion, a process described as a 'sequential three-site mechanism'.
Stepping Rotation of F1-ATPase with One, Two, or Three Altered Catalytic Sites That Bind ATP Only Slowly*
TLDR
It appears that the presence of the slow β subunit(s) does not seriously affect other normal β subunits in the same F1-ATPase molecule and that the order of sequential catalytic events is faithfully maintained even when ATP binding to one or two of the catalytic sites is retarded.
Resolution of distinct rotational substeps by submillisecond kinetic analysis of F1-ATPase
TLDR
It is shown by high-speed imaging that the 120° step consists of roughly 90° and 30° substeps, each taking only a fraction of a millisecond, which supports the binding-change model for ATP synthesis by reverse rotation of F1-ATPase.

TLDR
The novel function of the epsilon subunit as a coupling factor of ATP synthesis catalysed by F1 was revealed and the possible mechanism for highly coupled ATP synthesis supported by the ePSilon sub unit is discussed.

Direct observation of the rotation of F1-ATPase
TLDR
It is shown that a single molecule of F1-ATPase acts as a rotary motor, the smallest known, by direct observation of its motion by attaching a fluorescent actin filament to the γ-subunit as a marker, which enabled us to observe this motion directly.
Rotation of the γ Subunit in F1-ATPase; Evidence That ATP Synthase Is a Rotary Motor Enzyme
ATP-dependent, azide-sensitive rotation of the γ subunit relative to the α3β3 hexagonal ring of ATP synthase was observed with a single molecule imaging system. Thus, ATP synthase is a rotary motor

Rotation of subunits during catalysis by Escherichia coli F1-ATPase.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that gamma subunit rotates relative to the beta subunits during catalysis, and similar reactivities of unlabeled and radiolabeled beta sub units with gamma C87 upon reoxidation.
Intersubunit rotation in active F-ATPase
TLDR
An intersubunit rotation in real time in the functional enzyme F-ATPase is recorded by applying polarized absorption relaxation after photobleaching to immobilized F1 with eosin-labelled γ in a timespan of 100 ms, compatible with the rate of ATP hydrolysis by immobilization F1.
Intramolecular rotation in ATP synthase: dynamic and crystallographic studies on thermophilic F1.
TLDR
This review focuses on the dynamics of TF1, demonstrated by a crucial experiment, where the torque of the rotation was estimated to be 42 pN.nm from the delta microH+ and frictional force.
Structure at 2.8 Â resolution of F1-ATPase from bovine heart mitochondria
TLDR
The crystal structure of bovine mitochondrial F1-ATPase determined at 2.8 Å resolution supports a catalytic mechanism in intact ATP synthase in which the three catalytic subunits are in different states of the catalytic cycle at any instant.
Coupling of kinesin steps to ATP hydrolysis
TLDR
The measured ratio of ATP consumption rate to stepping rate is invariant over a wide range of ATP concentration, suggesting that the 1 ATP to 8 nm coupling inferred from behaviour at low ATP can be generalized to high ATP.
