Medical Definition of Vacuolar ATPase

1. From eukaryotic endomembrane systems, including vacuoles, lysosomes, golgi apparatus, chromaffin granules and coated vesicles. One of three major classes of ion transport ATPase, characterised by a multi subunit structure and a lack of a phosphorylated intermediate. Found in archaebacteria but not eubacteria, in the intracellular acidic vacuoles and in some proton pumping epithelia (e.g. Intercalated cells of kidney). A complex enzyme encoded by several genes, involved in ion translocation but does not act via phosphorylated enzyme intermediate See: P-type ATPase. Registry number: EC 3.6.1.- Synonym: atpase, v-type, atpase, vacuolar, vacuolar atpase, v-atpase, vacuolar h+-atpase, vacuolar membrane h(+)-atpase, vha55 gene product, vma16 gene product (26 Jun 1999)
