Gene Family: ATPases

ATPases: This family page represents all types of ATPases found in human. V-type and F-type ATPases are both rotor protein complexes and are related in structure and function. The V-type ATPase hydrolyses ATP to pump protons across membranes while the F-type ATPase couples proton transfer to synthesis of ATP from ADP. The AAA and P-type families are unrelated and comprise many individual members. The AAA ATPase family hydrolyse ATP to obtain energy for a diverse variety of biological processes. P-type ATPases use the energy from ATP hydrolysis to pump ions across cellular membranes. [Source: HGNC]
