The protein consists of three different subunits making it an αβγ heterotrimer. In order to display all of the structures in the tour properly, press 'View' buttons below in order (from 1 to the end). The sodium-potassium pump, also known as the Na,K-ATPase, a member of the P-type class of ATPases, is a critical protein found in the membranes of all animal cells. The α subunit contains about 1100 amino acids and is the largest one. It is a highly flexible bundle consisting of 10 α- helices. PMID 2158121. 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). Note that the secondary structure of all subunits is almost exclusively composed of α helices. To date, the mechanisms of sodium pump activation and the role of protein kinase-mediated phosphorylation of Na +,K + - ATPase subunits, in response to insulin, have not been defined.

Note that oxygens from Asn783 and Asp811 carboxylate groups serve as bridging ligands between two potassium sites. it uses energy from ATP). The Na+-K+ pump is a P-type ATPase with a structure similar to the H+-K+-ATPase and the sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum Ca2+-ATPase (SERCA) .

(The potential is negative on the inside of the membrane.). This anion is frequently used as a mimic for free inorganic phosphate (Pi) in protein crystallography. Four donor atoms are neutral with three coming from C=O bonds in the protein backbone (Ala728, Leu725 and Lys726). It is connected to the upper parts of the α subunit through several very flexible hinges (upper part of the domain). Data from 5 experiments are summarized in each panel. 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). jmolButton("select [mg]2002:a.

Interacts with … The E2 conformation opens the same metal binding sites to the extracellular environment and changes the metal binding affinity to low. Once ATP binds, the salt bridge is broken and the N- and A-domains are pushed away from each other. "Molecular genetics of Na,K-ATPase". In spite of this, insulin caused a three- to sixfold higher translocation of the α2 and β1 subunits of the Na + -K + -pump in TG compared with non-TG animals. It relies on the Na+/K+ ATPase (also referred to as the Na pump), which is composed of a catalytic α subunit and a β subunit required for its transport to the plasma membrane and for regulating its activity. The γ subunit is the smallest one with about 50 amino acids in the primary structure (30 of which form a transmembrane helix). 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. The potassium cations are coordinated to the protein by oxygen atoms (red spheres). The sodium-potassium pump described in detail in the following paragraphs is in the E2 product state ([Rb 2]E2⋅MgF 4 2-) (1). This gene encodes an alpha 1 subunit. ... ion that stimulates sodium potassium pump when increased.

The β-subunit interacts with the α-subunit through two Tyr residues of this conserved sequence. The simplest and most straightforward determinants of pump activity are the concentrations of substrates. Differential expression of gill Na +,K +-ATPase α- and β-subunits, Na +,K +,2Cl − cotransporter and CFTR anion channel in juvenile anadromous and landlocked Atlantic salmon Salmo salar. It secondary structure is predominantly composed of α-helices. In this report we focus on the genes encoding the subunits of the plasma membrane sodium pump, Na+,K*-ATPase, which is generally accepted as establishing the trans-trophectodermal Na~ flux that drives cavitation (cf., Wiley, 1987). 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.

The Na, K-ATPase is a heteromeric protein consisting of α and β subunits. The alpha1 (α1) subunit of the sodium/potassium ATPase (i.e., Na + /K + -ATPase α1), the prototypical sodium pump, is expressed in each eukaryotic cell. How does the Na/K pump works?

The four residues comprising the conserved sequence are shown here. [5], The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the family of P-type cation transport ATPases, and to the subfamily of Na+/K+-ATPases. This is the non-catalytic component of the active enzyme, which catalyzes the hydrolysis of ATP coupled with the exchange of Na(+) and K(+) ions across the plasma membrane. Asp376 is the residue that gets phosphorylated. The Na,K-pump is a heteromeric enzyme consisting of two noncovalently linked, dissimilar subunits, a and b, present in equimolar amounts. This movement exposes the P-domain for phosphorylation. The geometry at this K+ center is distorted square pyramidal. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified. It performs several functions in cell physiology. This domain is highly conserved among all P-type ATP-ases. *Statistical significance. jmolButton("select all;wireframe 10;cartoon off; select 389-599;cartoon; wireframe off;select [asn]540:a.ca;label Nucleotide binding|(or N) domain;color label yellow;set labelFront ON;set labelAlignment center", "View 4", 4, "N_domain") This is the full structure of Na+-K+ pump: feel free to play with this and any other display in this tour.
