Structure of the ATP synthase catalytic complex (F1) from Escherichia coli in an auto-inhibited conformation
The crystal structure of the ATP synthase catalytic complex (F1) from Escherichia coli described here reveals the structural basis for autoinhibition by one of its rotary stalk subunits, and adopts a heretofore unknown, highly extended conformation that inserts deeply into the central cavity of the enzyme.
Structural evidence of a new catalytic intermediate in the pathway of ATP hydrolysis by F1–ATPase from bovine heart mitochondria
The molecular description of the mechanism of F1–ATPase is based mainly on high-resolution structures of the enzyme from mitochondria, coupled with direct observations of rotation in bacterial enzymes, and has captured another intermediate in the catalytic cycle, which helps to define the order of substrate release.
The structure of bovine F1‐ATPase inhibited by ADP and beryllium fluoride
In the structure of F1‐ATPase with five bound ADP molecules (three in α‐subunits, one each in the βTP and βDP subunits), which has been determined, the conformation of αArg373 suggests that it senses the presence (or absence of the γ‐phosphate of ATP.
Novel features of the rotary catalytic mechanism revealed in the structure of yeast F1 ATPase
The shifts in position of the central stalk between two of the three copies of yeast F1 ATPase give new insight into the conformational changes that take place during rotational catalysis.
Ground State Structure of F1-ATPase from Bovine Heart Mitochondria at 1.9 Å Resolution*
The structure with bound azide represents the ADP inhibited state of the enzyme, and the new structure represents a ground state intermediate in the active catalytic cycle of ATP hydrolysis.
A bi-site mechanism for Escherichia coli F1-ATPase accounts for the observed positive catalytic cooperativity.
How azide inhibits ATP hydrolysis by the F-ATPases.
The structure of bovine F1-ATPase determined at 1.95-A resolution with crystals grown in the presence of ADP, 5'-adenylyl-imidodiphosphate, and azide explains the stimulatory effect of azide on ATP-sensitive potassium channels by enhancing the binding ofADP.

It is concluded that ATP binding to a second catalytic site is sufficient to support rapid rates of catalysis.
The structure of F1-ATPase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae inhibited by its regulatory protein IF1
The structure of F1-ATPase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae inhibited by the yeast IF1 has been determined and provides further evidence of sequential product release, with the phosphate and the magnesium ion released before the ADP molecule.
Understanding ATP synthesis: structure and mechanism of the F1-ATPase (Review)
The energetics associated with two different models of the reaction steps, analysed using molecular dynamics calculations, show that three-nucleotide intermediates do not occur in configurations with an open β subunit; instead, they are stabilized by completing a jaw-like motion that closes the β sub unit around the nucleotide.


Structure at 2.8 Â resolution of F1-ATPase from bovine heart mitochondria
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.
The structure of the central stalk in bovine F1-ATPase at 2.4 Å resolution
The central stalk in ATP synthase is made of γ, δ and ɛ subunits in the mitochondrial enzyme, and with crystals of F1-ATPase inhibited with dicyclohexylcarbodiimide, the complete structure was revealed.

Structure of the gamma-epsilon complex of ATP synthase.
The crystal structure of a complex of the epsilon-sub unit and the central domain of the gamma-subunit refined at 2.1 A resolution reveals how rotation of these subunits causes large conformational changes in F(1), and thereby provides new insights into energy coupling between F(o) and F( 1).
Rotation of subunits during catalysis by Escherichia coli F1-ATPase.
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.

Molecular architecture of the rotary motor in ATP synthase.
An electron density map obtained from crystals of a subcomplex of yeast mitochondrial ATP synthase shows a ring of 10 c subunits whose extensive contact between the c ring and the stalk suggests that they may rotate as an ensemble during catalysis.
