Name  ATPase, V1 complex, subunit C Short Name  ATPase_V1-cplx_csu
Type  Family Description  Transmembrane ATPases are membrane-bound enzyme complexes/ion transporters that use ATP hydrolysis to drive the transport of protons across a membrane. Some transmembrane ATPases also work in reverse, harnessing the energy from a proton gradient, using the flux of ions across the membrane via the ATPase proton channel to drive the synthesis of ATP. There are several different types of transmembrane ATPases, which can differ in function (ATP hydrolysis and/or synthesis), structure (e.g., F-, V- and A-ATPases, which contain rotary motors) and in the type of ions they transport [, ]. The different types include:F-ATPases (F1F0-ATPases), which are found in mitochondria, chloroplasts and bacterial plasma membranes where they are the prime producers of ATP, using the proton gradient generated by oxidative phosphorylation (mitochondria) or photosynthesis (chloroplasts).V-ATPases (V1V0-ATPases), which are primarily found in eukaryotic and they function as proton pumps that acidify intracellular compartments and, in some cases, transport protons across the plasma membrane []. They are also found in bacteria [].A-ATPases (A1A0-ATPases), which are found in Archaea and function like F-ATPases, though with respect to their structure and some inhibitor responses, A-ATPases are more closely related to the V-ATPases [, ].P-ATPases (E1E2-ATPases), which are found in bacteria and in eukaryotic plasma membranes and organelles, and function to transport a variety of different ions across membranes.E-ATPases, which are cell-surface enzymes that hydrolyse a range of NTPs, including extracellular ATP.V-ATPases (also known as V1V0-ATPase or vacuolar ATPase) () are found in the eukaryotic endomembrane system, and in the plasma membrane of prokaryotes and certain specialised eukaryotic cells. V-ATPases hydrolyse ATP to drive a proton pump, and are involved in a variety of vital intra- and inter-cellular processes such as receptor mediated endocytosis, protein trafficking, active transport of metabolites, homeostasis and neurotransmitter release []. V-ATPases are composed of two linked complexes: the V1 complex (subunits A-H) contains the catalytic core that hydrolyses ATP, while the V0 complex (subunits a, c, c', c'', d) forms the membrane-spanning pore. V-ATPases may have an additional role in membrane fusion through binding to t-SNARE proteins [].This entry represents the C subunit that is part of the V1 complex, and is localised to the interface between the V1 and V0 complexes[]. This subunit does not show any homology with F-ATPase subunits. The C subunit plays an essential role in controlling the assembly of V-ATPase, acting as a flexible stator that holds together the catalytic (V1) and membrane (V0) sectors of the enzyme []. The release of subunit C from the ATPase complex results in the dissociation of the V1 and V0 subcomplexes, which is an important mechanism in controlling V-ATPase activity in cells.
