Proton-translocating transhydrogenase: an update of unsolved and controversial issues


, : Proton-translocating transhydrogenase: an update of unsolved and controversial issues. Journal of Bioenergetics and Biomembranes 40(5): 463-473

Proton-translocating transhydrogenases, reducing NADP(+) by NADH through hydride transfer, are membrane proteins utilizing the electrochemical proton gradient for NADPH generation. The enzymes have important physiological roles in the maintenance of e.g. reduced glutathione, relevant for essentially all cell types. Following X-ray crystallography and structural resolution of the soluble substrate-binding domains, mechanistic aspects of the hydride transfer are beginning to be resolved. However, the structure of the intact enzyme is unknown. Key questions regarding the coupling mechanism, i.e., the mechanism of proton translocation, are addressed using the separately expressed substrate-binding domains. Important aspects are therefore which functions and properties of mainly the soluble NADP(H)-binding domain, but also the NAD(H)-binding domain, are relevant for proton translocation, how the soluble domains communicate with the membrane domain, and the mechanism of proton translocation through the membrane domain.

We have isolated the pgmB gene from Aspergillus nidulans, which encodes a phosphoglucomutase, one of the key enzymes in carbohydrate metabolism. The pgmB gene is located on chromosome VII and its ORF encodes 557 amino acids. Mutant phenotypes were...

While severe primary hyperparathyroidism (HPT) is clearly associated with osteitis fibrosa cystica, it remains uncertain whether mild, asymptomatic primary HPT adversely affects the skeleton. Thus, we assessed the incidence of age-related fracture...
