ADP-induced inhibition of mitochondrial F1-ATPase has been studied. It is shown that in the presence of magnesium and the absence of light, the photoaffinity ADP analog, 2-azido-ADP, induces a reversible inhibition of native F1 that is indistinguishable from that obtained with ADP. Photolysis of the inactive complex results in the predominant labeling of a catalytic-site peptide identified previously (Cross et al., 1987, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 84, 5715-5719). Dissociation of the inactive complex formed between F1 and ADP is biphasic with a rapid azide-insensitive phase followed by a slow azide-sensitive phase (k approximately 3 x 10(-3) s-1). It is also shown that incubation of the ADP-inhibited enzyme with EDTA or phosphate does not result in release or migration of ADP from the catalytic site. However, it does convert the complex to a form that reactivates in the presence of 100 microM ATP at a rate too rapid to observe using manual mixing.
