The H[sup +]-ATPases of mitochondria, chloroplasts, and bacteria are complex enzymes that couple the synthesis and hydrolysis of adenosine 5'-triphosphate to transmembrane fluxes of protons. In both structure and chemical mechanism, this class of enzymes differs markedly from the ion-translocating ATPases found in most cellular plasma membranes.

    Background: Serum neopterin concentrations rise during activation of the cellular immune system. It is suggested that neopterin interacts with cellular redox mechanisms. This induces oxidative stress, which inhibits intracellular Ca[sup 2+] transients in various cell types. In type II alveolar...

    The present paper describes general principles of redox catalysis and redox regulation in two diverse systems. The first is microbial metabolism of CO by the Wood--Ljungdahl pathway, which involves the conversion of CO or H2/CO2 into acetyl-CoA, which then serves as a source of ATP and cell...

    Physical exercise increases the metabolic rate and production of reactive oxygen species subsequent to elevated oxidative phosphorylation required to meet the higher ATP demand. This increased free radical generation could alter the redox state of proteins. In order to gain insight into the...
