The S. cerevisiae plasma membrane H+-ATPase, Pma1, is a P3A-type ATPase and the primary protein component of the membrane compartment of Pma1 (MCP). Like other plasma membrane H+-ATPases, Pma1 assembles and functions as a hexamer, a property unique to this subfamily among the larger family of P-type ATPases. It has been unclear how Pma1 organizes the yeast membrane into MCP microdomains, or why it is that Pma1 needs to assemble into a hexamer to establish the membrane electrochemical proton… 
Yeast Trk1 Potassium Transporter Gradually Changes Its Affinity in Response to Both External and Internal Signals
It is found that Trk1’s KT and Vmax change gradually and precisely reflects the changes in the intracellular potassium content and membrane potential, and the importance of the first and fourth P-helices in proper Trk 1 folding and activity at the plasma membrane is highlighted.
Golgi-Bypass Is a Major Unconventional Route for Translocation to the Plasma Membrane of Non-Apical Membrane Cargoes in Aspergillus nidulans
The findings point to the idea that Golgi-bypass might not constitute a fungal-specific peculiarity, but rather a novel major and cargo-specific sorting route in eukaryotic cells that has been largely ignored.
Uncovering diffusive states of the yeast proton pump, Pma1, and how labeling method can change diffusive behavior
Video-microscopy-based single-particle-tracking measurements of the budding yeast, Pma1, are presented, demonstrating that labeling method can be an important determinant of diffusive behavior, and perturbation expectation maximization (pEMv2) is applied, which sorts trajectories into the statistically-optimum number of di-usive states.
LipIDens: Simulation assisted interpretation of lipid densities in cryo-EM structures of membrane proteins
LipIDens enables direct integration of experimental and computational structural approaches to facilitate the interpretation of lipid-like cryo-EM densities and to reveal the molecular identities of protein-lipid interactions within a bilayer environment.


Crystal structure of the plasma membrane proton pump
The first structure of a P-type proton pump determined by X-ray crystallography is presented, and the structure is locked in a functional state not previously observed in P- type ATPases.
Three-dimensional map of the plasma membrane H+-ATPase in the open conformation
A three-dimensional map of the H+-ATPase is obtained by electron crystallography of two-dimensional crystals grown directly on electron microscope grids and reveals ten membrane-spanning α-helices in the membrane domain, and four major cytoplasmic domains in the open conformation of the enzyme without bound ligands.
Structure-Function Relationships in Membrane Segment 5 of the Yeast Pma1 H+-ATPase*
A critical role is indicated for this membrane segment in protein folding and in the conformational changes that accompany the reaction cycle for yeast H+-ATPase by alanine-scanning mutagenesis.
The Oligomeric State of the Plasma Membrane H+-ATPase from Kluyveromyces lactis
It is concluded that the quaternary structure of the H+-ATPase is the Hexamer and that a relationship seems to exist between ATPase function and the aggregation state of the hexamer.
Membrane potential governs lateral segregation of plasma membrane proteins and lipids in yeast
Using the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model organism, a novel role of the membrane potential in the organization of the plasma membrane is discovered and evidence is presented that sterols, the main lipid constituent of the Plasma membrane, also accumulate within the patchy compartment.
Visualization of protein compartmentation within the plasma membrane of living yeast cells.
To the authors' knowledge, this is the first observation of a cell polarization-independent lateral compartmentation in the plasma membrane of a living cell.
Cryo-EM structures capture the transport cycle of the P4-ATPase flippase
Cryo–electron microscopy structures of six distinct intermediates of the human ATP8A1-CDC50a heterocomplex show how phospholipids are translocated from the outer to the inner leaflet of a eukaryotic cell membrane, and advance the understanding of the flippase mechanism and the disease-associated mutants of P4-ATPases.
Transport mechanism of P4 ATPase phosphatidylcholine flippases
The P4 ATPases may have retained an overall transport mechanism while evolving distinct features for different lipid substrates while retaining a conserved mechanism among P 4 ATPases.
Structure, Mechanism, and Regulation of the Neurospora Plasma Membrane H+-ATPase
An atomic homology model of the proton pump based on the 2.6 angstrom x-ray structure of the related Ca2+ pump from rabbit sarcoplasmic reticulum reveals the likely path of theproton through the membrane and shows that the nucleotide-binding domain rotates by ∼70° to deliver adenosine triphosphate to the phosphorylation site.
Domain movements of plasma membrane H+‐ATPase: 3D structures of two states by electron cryo‐microscopy
Structural comparisons indicate that there is a rearrangement of the cytoplasmic domain on Mg2+/ADP binding, which consists of a movement of mass towards the 6‐fold axis causing the structure to become more compact, accompanied by a modest conformational change in the transmembrane domain.
