Secondary Information

Presence in other biological fluids/tissue/cells highly expressed in kidneys; brain; sperm cells express a unique Na,K-ATPase isoform
Protein Function αsubunit is responsible for the catalytic activity of the Na,K-ATPase while the ß subunit is important in the maturation and transport of the enzyme to the plasma membrane; maintains the gradient of sodium and potassium across plasma membrane; main kidney functions are to filter the blood of waste products to reabsorb glucose and amino acids, to regulate electrolytes and to maintain pH; in sperm cells - regulation of ions and membrane potential is crucial for motility and the acrosome reaction and is essential for male fertility; in brain- required to fire action potential
Biochemical Properties beta subunit has three conserved disulfide bonds in the extracellular domain, which are important for forming a stable pump; Na,K-ATPase exists as a heterodimer consisting of a large catalytic α subunit and a smaller glycoslated ß subunit; α subunit possesses eight transmembrane domains and the ß subunit only one; Ouabain binds at the permeation pathway of the Na /K ATPase
Significance in milk nutrient transport systems for milk precursors and constituents
PTMs ß domain has domain has three, eight, and two glycosylation sites in beta1, 2, and 3, respectively
Significance of PTMs Removal of the glycosylations causes retention in the endoplasmatic reticulumof beta2, but not of beta1 or 3, suggesting that the glycosylations play individual roles in the different isoforms
