[Primary structure of the dicyclohexylcarbodiimide-binding subunit of Streptococcus faecalis H+-ATPase].

[Article in Russian]


The complete amino acid sequence of dicyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCC)-binding subunit of proton adenosine triphosphatase from glycolysing bacteria Streptococcus faecalis was established. Isolation of the protein from subbacterial particles was carried out by using extraction with a chloroform/methanol mixture and following gel-filtration on Sephadex LH-60 and Bio-gel P-30. To establish the primary structure, use was made of cyanogen bromide and hydroxylamine cleavages, trypsin and partial acid hydrolyses. Separation of the peptide fragments obtained from cyanogen bromide and hydroxylamine cleavages and partial acid hydrolysis was performed by gel-filtration on Bio-gel P-10 and reversed-phase HPLC. Peptide structures were determined mainly with the aid of 4-N,N-dimethylaminoazobenzene-4'-isothiocyanate. The polypeptide chain of the protein consists of 71 amino acid residues (mol. wt. 7291). The primary structure of the protein from S. faecalis shares all common features of the structural organization of other H+-ATPase DCC-binding subunits and shows a high degree of homology with the corresponding subunit of thermophilic bacterium PS-3. Inactivation of H+-ATPase with DCC was due to modification of Glu54 of the polypeptide chain.
