Voltage coupling of primary H+ V-ATPases to secondary Na+- or K+-dependent transporters.

Abstract

This review provides alternatives to two well established theories regarding membrane energization by H(+) V-ATPases. Firstly, we offer an alternative to the notion that the H(+) V-ATPase establishes a protonmotive force (pmf) across the membrane into which it is inserted. The term pmf, which was introduced by Peter Mitchell in 1961 in his chemiosmotic… (More)
