Selective Fe2+-catalyzed oxidative cleavage of gastric H+,K+-ATPase: implications for the energy transduction mechanism of P-type cation pumps

In the presence of ascorbate/H(2)O(2), Fe(2+) ions or the ATP-Fe(2+) complex catalyze selective cleavage of the alpha subunit of gastric H(+),K(+)-ATPase. The electrophoretic mobilities of the fragments and dependence of the cleavage patterns on E(1) and E(2) conformational states are essentially identical to those described previously for renal Na(+),K(+)-ATPase. The cleavage pattern of H(+),K(+)-ATPase by Fe(2+) ions is consistent with the existence of two Fe(2+) sites: site 1 within highly conserved sequences in the P and A domains, and site 2 at the cytoplasmic entrance to trans-membrane segments M3 and M1. The change in the pattern of cleavage catalyzed by Fe(2+) or the ATP-Fe(2+) complex induced by different ligands provides evidence for large conformational movements of the N, P, and A cytoplasmic domains of the enzyme. The results are consistent with the Ca(2+)-ATPase crystal structure (Protein Data Bank identification code; Toyoshima, C., Nakasako, M., Nomura, H., and Ogawa, H. (2000) Nature 405, 647-655), an E(1)Ca(2+) conformation, and a theoretical model of Ca(2+)-ATPase in an E(2) conformation (Protein Data Bank identification code ). Thus, it can be presumed that the movements of N, P, and A cytoplasmic domains, a...Continue Reading
