Vacuolar-type h+-pumping pyrophosphatases in the Malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum

Ramanayake, Darinee Nimeka Arundathie


Vacuolar-type H+-pumping pyrophosphatases (V-H+-PPases) are primary active transporters that utilise the energy from PPi (inorganic pyrophosphate) hydrolysis to translocate H+ ions across a biological membrane. These proteins have been well characterised in plant cells where they function in parallel with the ubiquitous vacuolar-type H+-pumping ATPase (V-H+-ATPase) to generate proton gradients across the plant vacuole membrane. V-H+-PPases have also been identified on the plasma membrane and...[Show more]
