Proton atpase

proton ATPase

(Science: enzyme) An ion pump that actively transports hydrogen ions across lipid bilayers in exchange for aTP.

major groups are the f-type ATPases, that run in reverse to synthesise aTP in bacterial, mitochondrial and chloroplast membranes (aTP synthase) and the v-type ATPases found in intracellular vesicles with an acidic lumen and on certain epithelial cells (e.g. Kidney intercalated cells). Gastric H/K aTPase is a proton ATPase.

Hydrochloric acid (HCL) in the stomach..

... mamalian stomach secrete HCL at a concentration of 0.1M. The secreted -protons, which are derived from the intracellular hydration of CO2 by carbonic anhydrase, are pumped out by an (H+ k+) ATPase antiport transporter is also required to complete the overall transport system. ...

increase speed Kinesin/dynein

... increase the flagellar rotation speed? Is is possible to increase the proton concentration by mean of engineering a V-type ATPase in the membrane that pumps in protons at the expanse of ATP? Tnx
