P-type ATPase references

The following list of references is by no means exhaustive, as there are (far) more than 5000 articles about P-type ATPases. It is meant to provide an entrance to the P-type ATPase field and comments and suggestions to improve it are very welcome.
This first article was the first linking ion transport to ATPase activity, a discovery that led to the Nobel Prize in Chemistry to J. C. Skou in 1997.

The article can also be found in the millenium volume of Biochimica et Biophysica Acta together with a comment on the original work written by J. C. Skou himself.The next articles provides the basis for this database. Articles providing structural information about P-type ATPases. Reviews about P-type ATPases. Pedersen and Carafoli suggested the name P-type ATPases to replace E1-E2 ATPases. The newest substrates shown to be transported by P-type ATPases: zinc, lead, cobalt, and maybe phospholipids. These articles showed the existance of two conformational steps during the P-type ATPase catalytic cycle. Defective P-type ATPases in humans are the cause of severe diseases, such as Menkes syndrome (ATP7A), Wilson disease (ATP7B), Brody myopathy (ATP2A1), Darier-White disease (ATP2A2), benign chronic pemphigus also known as Hailey-Hailey disease (ATP2C1), hereditary cholestasis also known as Bylers disease (ATP8B1), and Angelman syndrome (ATP10A). Misrouting of the FXYD subunit of the P2C ATPases leads to renal hypomagnesemia.An article providing information on the possible soluble ancestor of P-type ATPases.
