Plant type I proton pyrophosphatases (H+-PPases) were first isolated from vacuoles. Vacuolar H+-PPases have a well-documented role in hydrolyzing pyrophosphate and capturing the released energy to pump protons across the tonoplast and endomembranes to create a proton motive force. However, later studies of Arabidopsis showed a dual localization at the tonoplast and plasma membrane.

The ASU Center for Bioenergy and Photosynthesis is presenting this seminar.
