The pH of intracellular compartments in eukaryotic cells is a carefully controlled parameter that affects many cellular processes, including intracellular membrane transport, prohormone processing and transport of neurotransmitters, as well as the entry of many viruses into cells. The transporters responsible for controlling this crucial parameter in many intracellular compartments are the vacuolar (H+)-ATPases (V-ATPases). Recent advances in our understanding of the structure and regulation of…

To understand further the mechanism of inhibition by these antibiotics and the physiological role of the enzyme in the cell, isolated mutants of the filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa that are resistant to concanamycin are isolated.
Arg-735 of the 100-kDa subunit a of the yeast V-ATPase is essential for proton translocation
TLDR
It is suggested that Arg-735 is absolutely required for proton transport by the V-ATPases and is discussed in the context of a revised model of the topology of the 100-kDa subunit a.
Molecular Characterization of the Yeast Vacuolar H+-ATPase Proton Pore*
TLDR
Structural differences within the membrane-spanning domains of both V0 and F0 may account for the unique properties of the ATP-hydrolyzing V-ATPase compared with the ATP -generating F-type ATP synthase.

TLDR
Results indicate that a vacuolar type H(+)-ATPase is expressed in the plasma membrane of some tumor cells.
Early Steps in Assembly of the Yeast Vacuolar H+-ATPase*
TLDR
The data suggest that in wild-type cells, assembly occurs predominantly by the concerted assembly pathway, and V-ATPase complexes acquire the full complement of Vosubunits during or after exit from the endoplasmic reticulum.
