ATP-dependent reactions catalyzed by inner membrane vesicles of rat liver mitochondria. Kinetics, substrate specificity, and bicarbonate sensitivity.

Abstract

Three ATP-dependent reactions catalyzed by the inner membrane of rat liver mitochondria and the ATPase reaction catalyzed by purified mitochondrial ATPase (F1), were studied with respect to kinetic properties, substrates specificity, and sensitivity to bicarbonate. The ATP-dependent transhydrogenase reaction (reduction of NADP+ by NADH) catalyzed by inner membrane vesicles displays typical Michaelis-Menten kinetics in both Tris-Cl and Tris-bicarbonate buffers, with Km (ATP) values of 0.035 mM and 0.054 mM respectively. The Vmax of transhydrogenase activity (25 nmol min-1 mg-1) is the same in Tris-bicarbonate or Tris-Cl buffer. ITP and GTP readily substitute for ATP in the transhydrogenase reaction. The ATP-P1 exchange reaction catalyzed by inner membrane vesicles displays typical Michaelis-Menten kinetics in both Tris-Cl and Tris-bicarbonate buffers with Km (ATP) values of 1.0 mM and 1.4 mM respectively. The Vmax of exchange (200 nmol min-1 mg-1) is the same in either buffer. ITP and GTP do not effectively replace ATP in the exchange reaction.
