Reaction: ATP + H2O + n Na+[side 1] = ADP + phosphate + n Na+[side 2]
Other name(s): sodium-transporting two-sector ATPase; Na+-translocating ATPase; Na+-translocating FoF1-ATPase; sodium ion specific ATP synthase
Systematic name: ATP phosphohydrolase (two-sector, Na+-transporting)
Comments: A multisubunit ATPase transporter found in some halophilic or alkalophilic bacteria that functions in maintaining sodium homeostasis. The enzyme is similar to EC 220.127.116.11 (H+-transporting two-sector ATPase) but pumps Na+ rather than H+. By analogy to EC 18.104.22.168, it is likely that the enzyme pumps 4 sodium ions for every ATP molecule that is hydrolysed. cf. EC 22.214.171.124, P-type Na+ transporter and EC 126.96.36.199, ABC-type Na+ transporter.
