V-type ATPase (V(o)V(1)) capable of ATP-driven H(+) pumping and of H(+) gradient driven ATP synthesis was isolated from a thermophilic eubacterium, Thermus thermophilus. When the enzyme was analyzed by gel electrophoresis in the presence of sodium dodecyl sulfate, it showed eight polypeptide bands of which four were subunits of V(1). We also isolated the V(o)V(1) operon, containing nine genes in the order of atpG-I-L-E-X-F-A-B-D, which encoded proteins with molecular sizes of 13, 43, 10, 20, 35… CONTINUE READING
