The G subunit of the vacuolar ATPase (V-ATPase) is a component of the stalk connecting the V(1) and V(O) sectors of the enzyme and is essential for normal assembly and function. Subunit G (Vma10p) of the yeast V-ATPase was expressed in Escherichia coli as a soluble protein and was purified to homogeneity. The molecular mass of subunit G, determined by Native-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, gel filtration analysis and small-angle X-ray scattering, was approximately 28+/-2 kDa, indicating that this protein is dimeric. With a radius of gyration (R(g)) and a maximum size (D(max)) of 2.7+/-0.2 nm and 8.0+/-0.3 nm, respectively, the G-dimer is rather elongated. To understand which region of subunit G is required to mediate dimerization, a G(38-144) form (the carboxyl-terminus) was expressed and purified. G(38-144) is homogeneous, with a molecular mass of approximately 12+/-3 kDa, indicating a monomeric form in solution.
