Cryo-EM studies of V/A type H+-rotary ATPase

ATP hydrolysis/synthesis in the soluble domain of proton-translocating rotary ATPases is coupled with proton flux across the membrane domain via a rotation of the common central rotor complex against the surrounding peripheral stator apparatus. Structures of the complete V/A type H+-rotary ATPase have been revealed at a near atomic resolution level using cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM). In this review article, we will describe the information about specimen preparation to improve the image quality and cryo-EM single particle analysis to overcome the intrinsic conformational heterogeneity of the Tth V/A-ATPases.
