Ni-chelate-affinity purification and crystallization of the yeast mitochondrial F1-ATPase.

The yeast mitochondrial ATPase has been genetically modified to include a His(6) Ni-affinity tag on the amino end of the mature beta-subunit. The modified beta-subunit is imported into the mitochondrion, properly processed to the mature form, and assembled into a mature and fully active ATP synthase. The F(1)-ATPase has been purified from submitochondrial particles after release from the membrane with chloroform, followed by Ni-chelate-affinity and gel filtration chromatography. The final enzyme is a homogeneous preparation with full activity and no apparent degradation products. This enzyme preparation has been used to obtain crystals that diffract to better than 2.8 A resolution.
