|Title:||Binding Of Adenine Nucleotides To The F1-inhibitor Protein Complex Of Bovine Heart Submitochondrial Particles|
Tuena De Gomez-Puyou M.
|Abstract:||The binding of ATP radiolabeled in the adenine ring or in the γ- or α-phosphate to F1-ATPase in complex with the endogenous inhibitor protein was measured in bovine heart submitochondrial particles by filtration in Sephadex centrifuge columns or by Millipore filtration techniques. These particles had 0.44 ± 0.05 nmol of F1 mg-1 as determined by the method of Ferguson et al. [(1976) Biochem. J. 153, 347]. By incubation of the particles with 50 μM ATP, and low magnesium concentrations (<0.1 μM MgATP), it was possible to observe that 3.5 mol of [γ-32P] ATP was tightly bound per mole of F1 before the completion of one catalytic cycle. With [γ-32P]ITP, only one tight binding site was detected. Half-maximal binding of adenine nucleotides took place with about 10 μM. All the bound radioactive nucleotides were released from the enzyme after a chase with cold ATP or ADP; 1.5 sites exchanged with a rate constant of 2.8 s-1 and 2 with a rate constant of 0.45 s-1. Only one of the tightly bound adenine nucleotides was released by 1 mM ITP; the rate constant was 3.2 s-1. It was also observed that two of the bound [γ-32P]ATP were slowly hydrolyzed after removal of medium ATP; when the same experiment was repeated with [α-32P] ATP, all the label remained bound to F1, suggesting that ADP remained bound after completion of ATP hydrolysis. Particles in which the natural ATPase inhibitor protein had been released bound tightly only one adenine nucleotide per enzyme. The results indicate that one of the first events that occurs during ATP hydrolysis by the F1-inhibitor protein complex is the binding of two to three adenine nucleotides to sites that apparently are not hydrolytic. In addition, it was found that in the complex, the affinity of two to three of its adenine nucleotide binding sites is higher than in particulate enzymes devoid of the inhibitor protein. © 1992 American Chemical Society.|
