The ATP synthase of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is composed of 20 different subunitswhose primary structure is known. The organization of proteins that constitute the membranousdomain is now under investigation. Cysteine insertions combined with the use of nonpermeantmaleimide reagents and cross-linking reagents showing different lengths and specificitycontribute to the knowledge of the location of the N- and C-termini of the subunits involved in thestator of the enzyme and their organization. This review summarizes data on yeast ATP synthaseobtained in our laboratory since 1980.
