PPA2 Ppa2p

PPase, ppa2
The protein encoded by this gene is localized to the mitochondrion, is highly similar to members of the inorganic pyrophosphatase (PPase) family, and contains the signature sequence essential for the catalytic activity of PPase. PPases catalyze the hydrolysis of pyrophosphate to inorganic phosphate, which is important for the phosphate metabolism of cells. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Fluorescent and Colorimetric Dual-Readout Assay for Inorganic Pyrophosphatase with Cu(2+)-Triggered Oxidation of o-Phenylenediamine.
Yang et al., Changchun, China. In Anal Chem, Feb 2016
We demonstrate a rationally designed fluorescent and colorimetric dual-readout strategy for the highly sensitive, quantitative determination of inorganic pyrophosphatase (PPase) activity, a key hydrolytic enzyme involved in a variety of metabolic processes.
Nitrogen use efficiency is mediated by vacuolar nitrate sequestration capacity in roots of Brassica napus.
Ismail et al., Pensacola, United States. In Plant Physiol, Feb 2016
We found that activities of V-ATPase and V-PPase, the two tonoplast proton-pumps, were significantly lower in roots of the high-NUE genotype (Xiangyou15) than in the low-NUE genotype (814); and consequently, less vacuolar NO3- was retained in roots of Xiangyou15.

Mimura et al., Shimla, India. In Plant Cell Environ, Feb 2016
It depends on two vacuolar pumps (V-ATPase and V-PPase) and a set of tonoplast transporters which are directly driven by proton motive force, and primary ATP-dependent pumps.

Evolution of acidocalcisomes and their role in polyphosphate storage and osmoregulation in eukaryotic microbes.
Moreno et al., Athens, United States. In Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci, 2010
While its matrix contains enzymes related to poly P metabolism, the membrane of the acidocalcisomes has a number of pumps (Ca(2+)-ATPase, V-H(+)-ATPase, H(+)-PPase), exchangers (Na(+)/H(+), Ca(2+)/H(+)), and at least one channel (aquaporin).

In endomembrane compartments, pH is regulated by vacuolar H(+)-ATPase (V-ATPase), which, in plants, act together with H(+)-pyrophosphatases (PPase), whereas distinct P-type H(+)-ATPases in the cell membrane control the pH in the cytoplasm and energize the plasma membrane.
