F1 portion of ATP synthase Alpha – blue Beta – green Hexomer subunit the stick is the F0 subunit and the ball (lollipop is the F1 subunit) the gamma subunit is the connection between the motion of the c subunits so together the gamma and epsilon subunits are important for translating mechanical energy moving from F0 to F1 to changes in the binding sites in the active site of ATP synthase.

overall goal: translate electrochemical gradient into mechanical energy which changes the binding site of the substrates (ADP and Pi) in order to form ATP. The cool thing is that by MOVING , it creates ATP Hydrogen+ moves through the membrane THROUGH THE F0, which allows rotation of the gamma subunit relative to the F1, which leads to a change in conformation of the alpha and beta subunits of F1, which leads to ATP synthesis F0 IS IN THE MEMBRANE. We expect it to have hydrophobic residues.
