GeneCards Summary for MT-ATP8 Gene
MT-ATP8 (Mitochondrially Encoded ATP Synthase 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MT-ATP8 include periodic paralysis with later-onset distal motor neuropathy and mitochondrial complex v deficiency, mitochondrial 2. Among its related pathways are Alzheimer's disease and Respiratory electron transport, ATP synthesis by chemiosmotic coupling, and heat production by uncoupling proteins.. GO annotations related to this gene include ATPase activity and hydrogen ion transmembrane transporter activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MT-ATP8 Gene
Mitochondrial membrane ATP synthase (F(1)F(0) ATP synthase or Complex V) produces ATP from ADP in the presence of a proton gradient across the membrane which is generated by electron transport complexes of the respiratory chain. F-type ATPases consist of two structural domains, F(1) - containing the extramembraneous catalytic core and F(0) - containing the membrane proton channel, linked together by a central stalk and a peripheral stalk. During catalysis, ATP synthesis in the catalytic domain of F(1) is coupled via a rotary mechanism of the central stalk subunits to proton translocation. Part of the complex F(0) domain. Minor subunit located with subunit a in the membrane (By similarity).
