Effects of ATP on the intermediary steps of the reaction of the (Na+ + K+)-ATPase. IV. Effect of ATP on K0.5 for Na+ and on hydrolysis at different pH and temperature

The pH optimum for (Na+ + K+)-ATPase (ATP phosphohydrolase, EC depends on the combination of monovalent cations, on the ATP concentration and on temperature. ATP decreases the Na+ concentration necessary for half maximum activation, K0.5 for Na+ (Na+ + K+ = 150 mM), and the effect is pH and temperature dependent. At a low ATP concentration a decrease in pH leads to an increase in K0.5 for Na+, while at the high ATP concentration it leads to a decrease. K0.5 for ATP for hydrolysis decreases with an increase in pH. The fractional stimulation by K+ in the presence of Na+ decreases with the ATP concentration, and at a low ATP concentration K+ becomes inhibitory, this being most pronounced at 0 degrees C. The results suggest that (a) ATP at a given pH has two different effects: it increases the Na+ relative to K+ affinity on the internal site (K0.5 for ATP at pH 7.4, 37 degrees C, is less than 10 microM); it increases the molar activity in the presence of Na+ + K+ (K0.5 for ATP at pH 7.4, 37 degrees , is 127 microM), (b) binding of the cations to the external as well as the internal sites leads to pK changes (Bohr effect) which are different for Na+ and for K+, i.e. the selectivity for Na+ relative to K+ depends both on ATP...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
