Abstract

BACKGROUND: The H,K-ATPase, consisting of α and ß subunits, belongs to the P-type ATPase family. There are two isoforms of the α subunit, HKα₁ and HKα₂ encoded by different genes. The ouabain-resistant gastric HKα₁-H,K-ATPase is Sch28080-sensitive. However, the colonic HKα₂-H,K-ATPase from different species shows poor primary structure conservation of the HKα₂ subunit between species and diverse pharmacological sensitivity to ouabain and Sch28080. This study sought to determine the contribution of each gene to functional activity and its pharmacological profile using mouse models with targeted disruption of HKα₁, HKα₂, or HKbeta genes. METHODS: Membrane vesicles from gastric mucosa and dista..
