Na+/K+-ATPases

Unless otherwise stated all data on this page refer to the human proteins. Gene information is provided for human (Hs), mouse (Mm) and rat (Rn).

Overview

« Hide

The cell-surface Na+/K+-ATPase is an integral membrane protein which regulates the membrane potential of the cell by maintaining gradients of Na+ and K+ ions across the plasma membrane, also making a small, direct contribution to membrane potential, particularly in cardiac cells. For every molecule of ATP hydrolysed, the Na+/K+-ATPase extrudes three Na+ ions and imports two K+ ions. The active transporter is a heteromultimer with incompletely defined stoichiometry, possibly as tetramers of heterodimers, each consisting of one of four large, ten TM domain catalytic α subunits and one of three smaller, single TM domain glycoprotein β-subunits (see table). Additional protein partners known as FXYD proteins (e.g. FXYD2, P54710) appear to associate with and regulate the activity of the pump.
