Abstract [en]

Cytochrome c oxidase is the terminal enzyme in the respiratory chains of mitochondria and many bacteria where it translocates protons across a membrane thereby maintaining an electrochemical proton gradient. Results from earlier studies on detergent-solubilized cytochrome c oxidase have shown that individual reaction steps associated with proton pumping display pH-dependent kinetics. Here, we investigated the effect of pH on the kinetics of these reaction steps with membrane-reconstituted cytochrome c oxidase such that the pH was adjusted to different values on the inside and outside of the membrane. The results show that the pH on the inside of the membrane fully determines the kinetics of internal electron transfers that are linked to proton pumping. Thus, even though proton release is rate limiting for these reaction steps (Salomonsson et al., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA, 2005, 102, 17624), the transition kinetics is insensitive to the outside pH (in the range 6–9.5).

Abstract [en]

Ion transport across membranes is of uttermost importance for us. It is the foundation for signaling of various kinds e.g. in the nerve-system. Furthermore, energy from photosynthesis and metabolism is conserved in electrochemical gradients across membranes, maintained by ion pumps. In this thesis I discuss mechanisms of how protons and other ions are translocated across biomembranes against their concentration gradients. I have studied one specific proton pump, cytochrome c oxidase (CytcO) and in the summary I also compare CytcO with two other pumps for which a wealth of structural and functional information has recently been obtained. The data in the articles presented in this thesis support a model were proton pumping can be achieved without simultaneous oxidation of heme a or electron transfer (paper I); where a proton is transferred to the catalytic site before the pump site is protonated (paper IV); and where proton release is preceded by a conformational change (paper II). These observations could be explained by a model involving a conformational change of the pump element, recently proposed from our laboratory1. Furthermore the results from the papers in this thesis show that proton uptake precedes proton release in D2O (paper II). The kinetics of electron transfers linked to proton pumping is solely determined by the pH on the N-side of the membrane (paper III). Finally Zn2+ added on the P-side of the membrane inhibits a specific reaction step (paper IV). In the three pumps described here conformational changes, modulating ion affinities, and the opening and closing of gates, seem to be involved in driving the ions across the membrane.
