I'm sure the exact frequency varies, but does anyone know roughly how many revolutions per minute / second the rotating center part makes?

According to "Resolution of distinct rotational substeps by submillisecond kinetic analysis of F1-ATPase" (Yasuda et al., Nature, 2001), ATPase rotates at 130 revolutions per second when saturated with ATP.
