Background and Assay Description: 

We performed a single solution exchange workflow by applying ATP in presence of 300 mM KCl to measure ATP-driven K+ translocation in KdpFABC. By applying different ATP concentrations in the range between 300 μM and 3 µM we could determine the EC50. The same assay was performed using D307A Kdp, a mutant which does not catalyze K+ translocation. Here, no current signal was observed for all ATP concentrations (red traces).
