AKC seminar: Evolution of Na+/K+- and plasma membrane H+-ATPases – which pump came first?

Michael PalmgrenAugust Krogh Seminar

Professor Michael Palmgren

Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences, Section for Transport Biology, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.


In animals, the plasma membrane is energized by the Na+/K+-ATPase. In plants and fungi, plasma membrane H+-ATPases energize the membrane but here the energy currency is H+. In my presentation, I will try to trace back the evolution of these pumps and discuss which pump came first.
