In the past, I have been working with F-ATPases which are 'rotary enzymes'. This feature was most convincingly
established by the groups of Dr. Kinosita and Dr. Yoshida in Japan. Movies of the ATP synthase and how it might
work can be found here and
Movies of our own work with the E. coli ATP synthase and rotation of the proteolipid oligomer,
aka the "c ring", can be found here.
Coordinates of models are available for spinach chloroplast CF1
and for E. coli. Models will be updated as new information becomes available and as time allows.
Please be sure to take a look at the README file in the coordinate
file directory upon using the coordinate files. (PHD-)sequence alignments for subunits
alpha, beta, and
gamma might prove helpful.
