The Na+/K+ binding site is located approximately in the middle of T-domain. The upper half of this subunit is embedded inside the membrane while the bottom half is located in the cytoplasm. Three sodium cations bind in the same pocket, but the exact locations and coordinating residues are unknown due to the lack of crystallographic data on sodium-bound Na+-K+ pump. 7). To study the role of the Na,K-ATPase beta subunit in the ion transport activity, we have coexpressed the Bufo alpha 1 subunit (alpha 1) with three different isotypes of beta subunits, the Bufo Na,K-ATPase beta 1 (beta 1NaK) or beta 3 (beta 3NaK) subunit or the beta subunit of the rabbit gastric H,K-ATPase (beta HK), by cRNA injection in Xenopus oocyte. The mutation experiments suggest that this salt bridge is the location of ATP binding. It belongs to a larger family of FXYD regulatory proteins (named after their FXYD characteristic sequence). Note the flexible hinges that connect T- and A- domains on the left hand side of the display. It is a highly flexible bundle consisting of 10 α- helices. Several isoforms of the Na, K-ATPase have been identified for both α (α1, α2, α3 and α4) and β subunits (β1, β2 … jmolButton("select [mf4]2001:a.f1 or [Asp]376:A.o or [mf4] or [leu]725:a or [lys]726:a or [ala]728:a or [asp]747:a or [hoh]5039 or potassium;set label off;measure off;select (:A and 371-388) or (:A and 600-760);color cartoon opaque;zoomto 2 (*) 100;select (:A and 85-153) or (:A and 282-370) or (:A and 761-1020);cartoon; wireframe off;color cartoon [50, 200, 50];select [asp]; label Transport (or T) domain;color label yellow;set labeloffset -1 0;select [thr];label Hinges;color label yellow;set labeloffset -1 0", "View 12", 12, "TM_domain") The α1 isoform is expressed in kidneys. 1 –α.

The large catalytic α subunit, a protein of ~ 110 kDa, is responsible for the transport activity of the enzyme and has an ATP binding site and phosphorylation site. This domain is highly conserved among all P-type ATP-ases. The simplest and most straightforward determinants of pump activity are the concentrations of substrates. Once ATP binds, the salt bridge is broken and the N- and A-domains are pushed away from each other. * or [mf4]2001:a. Variations in the catalytic activity of the pump, the number of active pumps expressed in the basolateral membrane, its substrate dependency towards Na and K, and its sensitivity to the inhibitor ouabain have been observed in distinct tubular segments.  |  jmolButton("select [mg]2002:a. doi: 10.14814/phy2.12369.

The β subunit has about 100 amino acid residues. * or [thr]378:a. Aldosterone-mediated Na/K-ATPase expression is alpha 1 isoform specific in the renal cortical collecting duct. The mechanism of insulin action in these tissues differs, in part, because of differences in the isoform complement of the catalytic alpha-subunit of the Na(+)-K(+) pump. Na⁺/K⁺-ATPase (sodium–potassium adenosine triphosphatase, also known as the Na⁺/K⁺ pump or sodium–potassium pump) is an enzyme (an electrogenic transmembrane ATPase) found in the membrane of all animal cells. The sodium and potassium gradients across the plasma membrane are used by animal cells for numerous processes, and the range of demands requires that the responsible ion pump, the Na,K-ATPase, can be fine-tuned to the different cellular needs. The energy required for the pump function can come from light (for example, photosynthetic reaction centers and proton pumping), from a redox process (complexes I to III in mitochondrial membrane) or from hydrolysis of ATP (ATPase pumps). The γ-subunit is a small α-protein consisting of about 35 residues. The N-terminal of β-subunit contains a highly conserved FYXXFY (Phe-Tyr-X-X-Phe-Tyr) motif, where X residues are hydrophobic (in this case Ile and Leu). 1993 Nov 5;268(31):23469-76. The β subunit is essential for folding, stabilizing and membrane targeting. Only one helix passes through the membrane while the rest of the subunit is exposed to the extracellular space (a red globule at the top of the structure). Whether these functions require other molecular determinants than the alpha 1 and beta 1 isoform subunits remains to be established. jmolButton("select all;polyhedra off;select [asn]783:a.od1 or [hoh]5010:a.o or [ser]782:a.o or [thr]779:a.cg2 or [asp]811:a.od2 or potassium;labels off;select (:A and 85-153) or (:A and 282-370) or (:A and 761-1020);color cartoon opaque; restore orientation full 1;select :a;cartoon off;spacefill off;wireframe; color wireframe green;select :b;wireframe off;cartoon on;select potassium; spacefill 120;color cpk", "View 17", 17, "beta_2") The X residue in this structure is Thr13. Na + /K +-ATPase is comprised of α and β subunits in 1:1 ratio which are both essential. This movement exposes the P-domain for phosphorylation. This helix-rich secondary structure provides the protein with flexibility necessary for achieving two distinct conformations. The pump adopts several different states (also known as cycle intermediates or pump forms) in each conformation that differ based on phosphorylation and cations bound. In order to display all of the structures in the tour properly, press 'View' buttons below in order (from 1 to the end). Since there is still controversy about where this translocation takes place from and if it takes place at all, the present study used different techniques to characterize the translocation. FXYD proteins modify the affinity for Na +, K +, and ATP, pump kinetics and transport properties and stabilize Na,K-ATPase (Garty and Karlish, 2006; Geering, 2006, 2008; Mishra et al., 2011). HHS Abstract. The γ subunit is the smallest one with about 50 amino acids in the primary structure (30 of which form a transmembrane helix). * or [val]616:a. Exercise-induced translocation of Na+-K+ pump subunits to the sarcolemmal membrane was studied using sarcolemmal giant vesicles as a membrane purification procedure. The cortical collecting duct represents a unique epithelium to study the physiological relevance of the regulation of Na+,K(+)-ATPase activity, including an immediate substrate activation, a rapid recruitment of active pumps from a reserve pool, and long-term hormonal effects. The geometry at this K+ is distorted octahedral. The mechanism of insulin action in these tissues differs, in part, because of differences in the isoform complement of the catalytic alpha-subunit of the Na(+)-K(+) pump.

Distribution of Na*,K*-ATPase c~ and ~3 subunits in sectioned mouse blastocysts as revealed by irnmunofluorescence. It utilizes ATP as a driving force to pump out three sodium ions in exchange for two extracellular potassium ions which establishes both The Na⁺/K⁺-ATPase enzyme is active (i.e. This enzyme is composed of two subunits, a large catalytic … NLM * or [HOH]5055:a. The β-subunit interacts with the α-subunit through two Tyr residues of this conserved sequence. Epub 2011 Jun 1. Therefore, several isoforms are expressed of each of the three subunits that make a Na,K-ATPase, the alpha, beta and FXYD subunits.  |  It is a five-coordinate cationic center with all O-donor ligands. Phosphorylation is a widely used, reversible means of regulating enzymatic activity. The action of Na +-K+ pump maintains a resting membrane potential of -30 mV to -70 mV in mammalian cells. P(i) configuration, indicates that the side chain of cysteine 46 is exposed to the lipid bulk phase of the membrane and not expected to be accessible to the cytosolic glutathione. This result may be attributed to a possibly rapid degradation of nonglycosylated β2 subunits, preventing the accumulation of nonglycosylated β2 subunits to … The actuator domain (or A-domain) is the protein phosphatase. jmolButton("zoomto 2 (atomno=10141 or atomno=10142) 950;select atomno=10141 or atomno=10142;spacefill 120;label K;color label yellow;color atom cpk;select (:A and 85-153) or (:A and 282-370) or (:A and 761-1020);color cartoon translucent;select [val]329:a or [ala]330:a or [val]332:a or [glu]786:a or [asp]811:a or [thr]779:a or [ser]782:a or [asn]783:a or [hoh]5010:a;spacefill 60;wireframe 25;color cpk;connect (atomno=10142) (atomno=5711) single create;select atomno=10142 or atomno=5711; wireframe 15;rotate y -15", "View 14", 14, "2K_zoom") Na + /K +-ATPase is an integral membrane protein responsible for establishing and maintaining the electrochemical gradients of Na and K ions across the plasma membrane.
