Abstract

The stoichiometry of yeast V(1)-ATPase peripheral stalk subunits E and G was determined by two independent approaches using mass spectrometry (MS). First, the subunit ratio was inferred from measuring the molecular mass of the intact V(1)-ATPase complex and each of the individual protein components, using native electrospray ionization-MS. The major observed intact complex had a mass of 593,600 Da, with minor components displaying masses of 553,550 and 428,300 Da, respectively. Second, defined amounts of V(1)-ATPase purified from yeast grown on (14)N-containing medium were titrated with defined amounts of (15)N-labeled E and G subunits as internal standards. Following protease digestion of subunit bands, (14)N- and (15)N-containing peptide pairs were used for quantification of subunit stoichiometry using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-time of flight MS. Results from both approaches are in excellent agreement and reveal that the subunit composition of yeast V(1)-ATPase is A(3)B(3)DE(3)FG(3)H.
