UV irradiation of rat liver F1 ATPase, previously exposed to Mg2+ and [beta, gamma-32P]-2-azido-ATP and separated from medium nucleotides, covalently modifies two tyrosine residues in adjacent tryptic peptides of the beta subunit. This results from the occupancy by 2-azido-ATP or 2-azido-ADP of two distinct types of nucleotide binding sites, the catalytic and noncatalytic sites. The two modified peptides are identical to the ones modified by 2-azido-adenine nucleotides in the beef heart F1 ATPase. Both catalytic and noncatalytic sites are labeled when the ATPase is exposed to [beta-32P]-2-azido-ADP in the presence or the absence of 5'-adenylyimidodiphosphate (AMP-PNP), showing that two distinct types of ADP binding sites are present on the liver enzyme. Similar incorporation of 2-azido-adenine nucleotides is obtained when membrane-bound rat liver F1 ATPase is incubated with Mg2+ and [beta, gamma-32P]-2-azido-ATP.
