Vacuolar ATPases (V-ATPases) are molecular machines responsible for creating electrochemical gradients and preserving pH-dependent cellular compartments by way of proton translocation across the membrane. V-ATPases employ a dynamic rotary mechanism that is driven by ATP hydrolysis and the central rotor stalk. Regulation of this rotational catalysis is the result of a reversible V1Vo-domain dissociation that is required to preserve ATP during instances of cellular starvation. Recently the method…

Crystal structure of yeast V1‐ATPase in the autoinhibited state
The crystal structure of yeast V1 presented here shows that activity silencing involves a large conformational change of subunit H, with its C‐terminal domain rotating ~150° from a position near the membrane in holo V‐ATPase to a position at the bottom of V1 near an open catalytic site.
Probing Subunit-Subunit Interactions in the Yeast Vacuolar ATPase by Peptide Arrays
Background Vacuolar (H+)-ATPase (V-ATPase; V1Vo-ATPase) is a large multisubunit enzyme complex found in the endomembrane system of all eukaryotic cells where its proton pumping action serves to
Coordinated conformational changes in the V1 complex during V-ATPase reversible dissociation
CryoEM of yeast V-ATPase was used to determine structures of the intact enzyme, the dissociated but complete V1 complex, and the V1complex lacking sub unit C, suggesting how RAVE could reassemble V1 and VO by recruiting subunit C.

Structure of the vacuolar-type ATPase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae at 11-Å resolution
This work presents the structure of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae V-type ATPase at 11-Å resolution by cryo-EM of protein particles in ice and provides support for this model by demonstrating that mutation of subunit H to increase the rigidity of the linker between its two domains decreases its ability to inhibit ATPase activity.

Addressing the regulation of V-ATPase is a promising approach to adjust its activity for improved stress resistance or higher crop yield.
Biochemical and Biophysical Properties of Interactions between Subunits of the Peripheral Stalk Region of Human V-ATPase
The in vitro binding interactions of the subunits at the stalk region of Homo sapiens (human) V-ATPase were investigated and it was likely that, in vivo, the E1G1 heterodimer has a significant role in the initiation of subunit assembly.
Structural Studies of Saccharomyces cerevisiae V1-ATPase in the Stationary Phase of Yeast Cell Culture
It was shown that by introducing a 3xFLAG tag at the C terminus of different V1-ATPase subunits, highly purified V 1- ATPase complex could be isolated and differed in the peripheral stalk subunit composition.


Structural organization of the V-ATPase and its implications for regulatory assembly and disassembly.
Reversible assembly/disassembly of V-ATPases has certain conformational constraints, which are best fulfilled by adopting a unique conformation before disassembly, which leads to an efficient shutdown of ATP consumption.

Assembly and Regulation of the Yeast Vacuolar H+-ATPase
This review focuses on characterization of the yeast V-ATPase stalk subunits, which form the interface between V1 and V0, potential mechanisms of silencing ATP hydrolytic activity in disassembled V1 sectors, and the structure and function of RAVE, a recently discovered complex that regulates V- ATPase assembly.
The structure of the peripheral stalk of Thermus thermophilus H+-ATPase/synthase
The crystal structure of the peripheral stalk of the A-type ATPase/synthase from Thermus thermophilus, which contains a heterodimeric right-handed coiled coil, a protein fold never observed before, is determined and fitted into the 23 Å resolution EM density of the intact A-ATPase complex.
