A satisfactory understanding of the functions of the sodium pump, the system responsible for the active transport of sodium and potassium, require the isolation and characterization of its protein and lipid components which are integrated in the structure of the cell membrane. The enzyme system (Na+ + K+)-ATPase, is located in membrane fragments and behaves in the test tube like the transport system in the intact cell membrane (Skou,1957) Purified preparations of this enzyme will contain some… Expand

Topics from this paper

Na,K-ATPase, Structure and Transport Mechanism
The Na,K pump is found in the surface membrane of most animal cells. In coupling the hydrolysis of ATP to active transport of 3 Na+ out and 2 K+ into the cell, the pump is electrogenic and necessaryExpand
Chapter 1 Na, K-ATPase, structure and transport mechanism
TLDR
This chapter discusses the organization of the proteins in the membrane, their interaction with cytoskeletal components, and the identification of protein segments that are engaged in the binding of nucleotides or cations and in conformational changes in the protein that bring about a reorientation of cation binding sites. Expand
Biochemical mechanism of the sodium pump.
TLDR
The paper focuses on the structure of the enzyme and on the biochemical mechanism of the fragmented enzyme, which is needed to unravel the puzzle of how the hydrolysis of ATP is coupled to the movement of Na+ and K+ across the plasma membrane. Expand
THE SODIUM AND POTASSIUM ION PUMP OR Na, K-ATPase
Publisher Summary The sodium pump serves numerous important physiological functions. It maintains cation gradients and osmotic equilibrium in all animal cells. It forms a battery for the actionExpand
Purification and characterization of (Na+ + K+)-ATPase. VI. Differential tryptic modification of catalytic functions of the purified enzyme in presence of NaCl and KCl.
TLDR
The relationship between the fractional loss of ATP binding and cleavage of the large chain suggests that the nucleotide binding area is confined to one of the two large chains in the protein complex with Mr=270 000 which binds one molecule of ATP. Expand
Structure, function and regulation of Na,K-ATPase in the kidney.
TLDR
The structure and function of the Na,K-pump proteins and the control of pump functions in kidney tubules are discussed and the nature of E 1 E 2 transitions in the α-subunit and their relation to cation binding, occlusion, and translocation in the reaction cycle will be examined. Expand
The subunit fine structure of isolated, purified Na+, K+-adenosine triphosphatase. Freeze-fracture study.
TLDR
The ultrastructural features of a purified fraction of Na+,K+-adenosine triphosphatase (ATPase) isolated from dog kidney medulla were compared with those of the initial crude microsomal fraction in the purification sequence to find the purified fraction is more homogeneous with respect to overall size and intramembrane protein particle size and distribution. Expand
Large-scale preparation of Na, K-ATPase from ox brain.
TLDR
The method permits a large amount of enzyme to be obtained rather quickly with about 60% of the original activity of Na,K-ATPase of the tissue being recovered, and it has a specific activity of about 200 μmoles ATP split per mg protein per hour. Expand
Purification and characterization of (Na+, K+)-ATPase. V. Conformational changes in the enzyme Transitions between the Na-form and the K-form studied with tryptic digestion as a tool.
TLDR
It is concluded that the regions of the large chain exposed in the presence of K+ are distinct from the regions exposed in presence of Na+ and that two conformations of (Na+, K+)-ATPase can be sensed with trypsin, a (T)K-form and a (t)Na-form. Expand

The results suggest that the enzyme unit binding one molecule of ATP or ouabain contains two chains of large polypeptide and that both chains are phosphorylation from ATP in the presence of Mg2+ and Na+. Expand

TLDR
The data suggest that the activation of (Na+ + K+)-ATPase is due to exposure of latent enzyme sites in the preparation, and it is common for the three detergents that maximal activation is obtained when the critical micelle concentration is reached. Expand

TLDR

Analysis of the sedimentation properties of (Na + + K + )-ATPase shows that the enzyme activity is associated with particles of different size with a well-defined equilibrium density in sucrose gradients, and the high purity of the preparation from the outer medulla is due to the isolation of plasma membranes with a high density of enzymes sites per unit membrane area.
