Motion in Na,K ATPase pump [nakpump]

[ jump to morphs ]

Classification Complex Motion [C----]

Although no medium-to-high resolution structures are available, the Na,K ATPase is extremely similar to the solved sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+-ATPase (both P-type ATPases). A combination of cryo-EM and homology modelling has indicated that the enormous conformational change observed in the calcium pump are likely present in this protein as well.
