Abstract

The vacuolar H(+)-ATPase (V-ATPase) functions as a primary proton pump that generates an electrochemical gradient of protons across the membranes of several internal organelles. It is composed of distinct catalytic and membrane sectors, each containing several subunits. We identified a protein (M16) that copurifies with the V-ATPase complex from Saccharomyces cerevisiae and appears to be present at multiple copies/enzyme. Amino acid sequencing of its proteolytic products yielded three nonoverlapping peptide sequences matching an unidentified reading frame located on chromosome VIII. Sequence analysis of cDNA encoding M16 revealed that the gene encoding this protein (VMA10) is interrupted by a 162-nucleotide intron that begins after the ATG codon of the initiator methionine. The cDNA encodes an hydrophilic protein of 12,713 Da with a basic isoelectric point of pH 9. A delta vma10::URA3 null mutant exhibited growth characteristics typical of other vma disruptant mutants in genes encoding subunits of V-ATPase. The null mutant does not grow on medium buffered at pH 7.5. It fails to accumulate quinacrine into its vacuole, and subunits of the catalytic sector are not assembled onto the vacuolar membrane in the absence of M16. A cold inactivation experiment demonstrated that M16 is a subunit of the membrane sector of V-ATPase. M16 exhibits a significant sequence homology with subunit b of F-ATPase membrane sector.
