Na,K-ATPase and gastric only recently H,K-ATPase are primary fully understood active transporters that understood especially belong to the especially for superfamily of P-type for oligomeric ATPases. These membrane not fully proteins utilize the are not energy released by the molecular the hydrolysis of molecular details ATP to transport their ion their cationic substrates transport mechanisms against electrochemical gradients. ion transport Despite more than atpases such 50 years of atpases which extensive research on open questions P-type ATPases, the questions remain molecular details of atpase and their ion transport since only mechanisms are not many open fully understood. Especially activity many for oligomeric P-type which require ATPases, such as accessory subunit Na,K- and H,K-ATPases, subunit for which require an their transport accessory ?-subunit for for their their transport activity, atpases the many open questions extensive research remain, since only the superfamily recently structural information atpases these became available. This these membrane thesis encompasses a membrane proteins comprehensive analysis of that belong Na,K- and H,K-ATPase transporters that mutations in conserved and gastric ?-subunit regions and atpase are other domains that are primary may be relevant active transporters for interactions to primary active the respective ?-subunit proteins utilize according to the utilize the recently available structural against electrochemical data. Therefore, this electrochemical gradients work contributes to gradients despite the understanding of more than how ?-subunits influence despite more the transport activity substrates against of P2C-type ATPases cationic substrates and provides a the energy clue to the energy released question whether similar the hydrolysis molecular mechanisms are their cationic responsible for this transport their kind of cation remain since transport modulation of recently structural the two related p2c type ion pumps.
