Abstract

Bovine V-ATPase from brain clathrin-coated vesicles was investigated by cryo-electron microscopy and single particle analysis. Our studies revealed great flexibility of the central linker region connecting V1 and V0. As a consequence, the two sub-complexes were processed separately and the resulting volumes were merged computationally. We present the first three-dimensional (3D) map of a V-ATPase obtained from cryo-electron micrographs. The overall resolution was estimated 34 Å by Fourier shell correlation (0.5 cutoff). Our 3D reconstruction shows a large peripheral stalk and a smaller, isolated peripheral density, suggesting a second, less well-resolved peripheral connection. The 3D map reveals new features of the large peripheral stator and of the collar-like density attached to the membrane domain. Our analyses of the membrane domain indicate the presence of six proteolipid subunits. In addition, we could localize the V0 subunit a flanking the large peripheral stalk.
