Vitreoscilla is a Na+ motive organism, generating a Na+ electrochemicalgradient during term nal respiration. The cytochrome bo ubiquinol oxidaseof this organism was identified as a primary Na+ pump. This oxidase hasfive subunits (CyoA-E) whose topological analysis shows that all of thesubunits are membrane-bound except 24 kDa soluble domain at the C-terminalend of CyoA (subunit II). The sodium pumping function of Vitreoscillacytochrome bo was proved using cyo(-) knockout mutant, and further provedby the experiment using cytochrome bo containing proteoliposomes, whichtranslocate Na+ when energized with ubiquinol. Complementation experimentof Na+-transport-lacking-mutant showed that CyoB (subunit I) is playing amajor role in Na+ pumping. The crystal structure of 24 kDa CyoA solubledomain, a putative quinol binding domain, was solved, and compared withthat of E. coli. Overall CyoA soluble domain structures from these twoorganisms are similar except for some differences around the putativequinol binding site, postulating structural difference between H+ pumpingand Na+ pumping CyoA soluble domains.
