ATP synthase protein 8 is an protein that in humans is encoded by the MT-ATP8 gene. It is a subunit of mitochondrial ATP synthase.

This subunit appears to be an integral component of the stator stalk in yeast mitochondrial F-ATPases.[1] The stator stalk is anchored in the membrane, and acts to prevent futile rotation of the ATPase subunits relative to the rotor during coupled ATP synthesis/hydrolysis. This subunit may have an analogous function in Metazoa. Subunit 8 differs in sequence between Metazoa, plants and fungi).
