F-type ATPase


F-type ATPase
(= F1F0 ATPase; ATP synthase; F-ATPase)
Multi-subunit proton-transporting ATPase, related to the V-type ATPase. Found in the inner membrane of mitochondria and chloroplasts, and in bacterial plasma membranes. Normally driven in reverse by chemiosmosis to make ATP, and so also known as ATP synthase.
