The alpha 3(beta Y341W)3 gamma subcomplex of the F1-ATPase from the thermophilic Bacillus PS3 fails to dissociate ADP when MgATP is hydrolyzed at a single catalytic site and attains maximal velocity when three catalytic sites are saturated with MgATP.

The hydrolytic properties of the alpha3beta3gamma and mutant alpha3(betaY341W)3gamma subcomplexes of the TF1-ATPase have been compared. ATPase activity of the mutant is less sensitive to turnover-dependent inhibition by azide, less suppressed by increasing concentrations of Mg2+ during assay, and less stimulated by lauryl dimethylamine oxide (LDAO). Therefore, it has much lower propensity than wild-type to entrap inhibitory MgADP in a catalytic site during turnover. The fluorescence of the… CONTINUE READING
