By applying the same method used for F1-ATPase (TF1) from thermophilic Bacillus PS3, we observed ATP-driven rotation of a fluorescent actin filament attached to the γ subunit in Escherichia coli F1-ATPase. The torque value and the direction of the rotation were the same as those observed for TF1. F1-ATPases seem to share common properties of rotation irrespective of the sources.
