Systematic comparison of molecular conformations of H+,K+-ATPase reveals an important contribution of the A-M2 linker for the luminal gating.
Bottom Line: The molecular conformation of the (SCH)E2·MgF state thus represents a mixed overall structure in which its cytoplasmic and luminal half appear to be independently modulated by a phosphate analog and an antagonist bound to the respective parts of the enzyme.Comparison of the molecular conformations revealed that the linker region connecting the A domain and the transmembrane helix 2 (A-M2 linker) mediates the regulation of luminal gating.The mechanistic rationale underlying luminal gating observed in H(+),K(+)-ATPase is consistent with that observed in sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase and other P-type ATPases and is most likely conserved for the P-type ATPase family in general.

Mentions: To compare the relative orientation of the cytoplasmic domains, the EM density map and homology models were aligned based on the superpositioning of the molecules on their P domain (see Fig. 3). To compare other structural parts, including the A-M2 linker and TM helices, the molecules were aligned by superpositioning of the TM segments M7-M10 and βM, which are the least variable of the reported SERCA structures.
