The mitochondrial F(1)F(o)-ATPase performs the terminal step of oxidative phosphorylation. Small molecules that modulate this enzyme have been invaluable in helping decipher F(1)F(o)-ATPase structure, function, and mechanism. Aurovertin is an antibiotic that binds to the beta subunits in the F(1) domain and inhibits F(1)F(o)-ATPase-catalyzed ATP synthesis in preference to ATP hydrolysis. Despite extensive study and the existence of crystallographic data, the molecular basis of the differential… CONTINUE READING
