The incubation of isolated factor F1 with the di-aldehyde derivative of ADP (oxADP) which is formed as a result of ADP treatment by periodate, causes the covalent binding of 0.9--1 molecules of the oxADP with a molecule of the enzyme. This modification of factor F1 is not accompanied by any changes in the ATPase activity of the enzyme. The modification of factor F1 is preceded by the reversible binding of oxADP with the enzyme with a Kd of 80 micro M. ADP partly prevents factor F1 from… 

Changes in chemical properties of mitochondrial adenosinetriphosphatase upon removal of tightly bound nucleotides.

The results suggest a conformational change in F1 caused by changes in nucleotide--protein interaction at the noncatalytic sites, which could be reversed by the subsequent addition of ATP.

Using 2'(3')-O-trinitrophenyl derivatives of adenine nucleotides to study the structure and mechanism of functioning of soluble mitochondrial ATPase.

The results obtained indicate that the sites of factor F1 that tightly bind nucleotides are immersed in the hydrophobic pocket of the protein molecule.

Interactions between the mitochondrial adenosinetriphosphatase and periodate-oxidized adenosine 5'-triphosphate, an affinity label for adenosine 5'-triphosphate binding sites.

The nature and mechanism of the inhibition of ATPase activity exerted by o-ATP and the elimination product were examined and the significance of the beta-elimination reaction to the use of periodate-oxidized nucleotides as affinity labels of nucleotide binding sites on other proteins is discussed.



The mitochondrial ATPase. Evidence for a single essential tyrosine residue.

1. Evidence is presented which indicates that inactivation of the mitochondrial ATPase from bovine heart by the reagent 4-chloro-7-nitrobenzofurazan results from modification of one tyrosine residue

Partial resolution of the enzyme catalyzing oxidative phosphorylation. XXII. Interaction between mitochondrial adenosine triphosphatase inhibitor and mitochondrial adenosine triphosphatase.

A protein which inhibits mitochondrial ATPase has been isolated from bovine heart mitochondria in pure form and its properties have been characterized and it was necessary to incubate the protein with ATPase in the presence of Mg++ and ATP.

An active-site-directed adenosine triphosphate analogue binds to the beta-subunits of factor F1 mitochondrial adenosine triphosphatase with its triphosphate moiety.

The results suggest that ATP may also bind to the beta-subunit of the adenosine triph phosphatase with its triphosphate moiety.

The Role of the Mitochondrial Adenine Nucleotide Transport in Heart

In the heart, the major source of ATP synthesis is the oxidative phosphorylation. It takes place in the mitochondrial matrix which is surrounded by the inner mitochondrial membrane. Energy is
