dc.description.abstractAbstract Recently, a novel molecular mechanism of torque generation in the F0 portion of ATP synthase was proposed [Rohatgi, Saha and Nath (1998) Curr. Sci. 75, 716-718].In this mechanism, rotation of the c-subunit was conceived to take place in 12 discrete steps of 30³ each due to the binding and unbinding of protons to/from the leading and trailing Asp-61 residues of the c-subunit, respectively. Based on this molecular mechanism, a kinetic scheme has been developed in this work. The scheme considers proton transport driven by a concentration gradient of protons across the proton half-channels, and the rotation of the csubunit changes in the electrical potential only. This kinetic scheme has been analyzed mathematically and an expression has been obtained to explain the pH dependence of the rate of ATP synthesis by ATP synthase under steady state operating conditions. For a single set of three enzymological kinetic parameters, this expression predicts the rates of ATP synthesis which agree well with the experimental data over a wide range of pHin and pHout. A logical consequence of our analysis is that vpH and v iare kinetically inequivalent driving forces for ATP synthesis.en
