Abstract

H(+) translocation is coupled to ATP synthesis in the F(0)F(1) ATP synthase via a rotary mechanism. Catalytic turnover, site-site cooperativity, and H(+) transport obligatorily involve rotation of a set of subunits. The transport domain in the membranous F(0) and the catalytic domain in the F(1) are mechanisms designed for generating torque.
