ATP synthase harnesses that energy to build a fuel molecule called ATP.
2008), and the main nuclear-encoded subunits from the F, domain of ATP synthase such as subunits ATP[alpha] (GenBank accession no.
In addition, two subunits of mitochondrial ATP synthase (encoded by ATP5B and ATP5H) were also increased.
Among the identified proteins, we observed decreases in the expression of phospholipid hydroperoxide glutathione peroxidase (PHGPX); ATP synthase subunit O, mitochondrial (ATP5O); glutathione S-transferase Mu 5 (GSTM5), mitochondrial NADH dehydrogenase [ubiquinone] 1 alpha subcomplex subunit 10 (NDUFA10).
An increase in the expression of ATP synthase was observed in wheat (Wang et al.
This pyrene-based sensor was used in HeLa cells to monitor the decrease in ATP levels upon addition of the ATP synthase inhibitor, oligomycin, and upon hydrolysis of ATP to ADP by apyrase (Pak et al.
This new class of drug is a diarylquinoline that specifically targets Mycobacterial ATP synthase, an enzyme essential for supply of energy to Mycobacterium tuberculosis and most other mycobacteria.
From water insoluble fraction, vimentin, gelsolin, gamma enolase like protein, filensin like protein and ATP synthase subunit B were identified.
The mitochondria, using the enzyme ATP synthase, use the energy produced in the electron transport chain to manufacture adenosine triphosphate (ATP) from adenosine diphosphate (ADP).
Specifically, the team found that blocking the action of the mitochondrial ATP synthase enzyme stalled egg cell development from stem cells in experiments in fruit flies, one of the main organisms used to study cell biology.
