Summary

This chapter contains sections titled:

  • Introduction: the Yeast V-ATPase

  • Role of the V-ATPase in the Acidification of the Yeast Vacuole

  • Overview of the Function and Structure of the Yeast V-ATPase

  • Composition and Assembly of the V1 Catalytic Domain of the Yeast V-ATPase

  • Composition of the Proton-translocating Domain of the Yeast V-ATPase
