At the present time, knowledge of the structure of the proton-translocating ATPase responsible for urinary acidification is far from complete. Key issues awaiting resolution are full definition of sub-unit structure and an understanding of the interactions among functional domains of this complex hetero-oligomer. Such a detailed analysis is required to begin study of the biogenesis of the vacuolar proton pump and to elucidate the complexities of its molecular regulation.
