Description Source: E. coli containing a clone of the human Topoisomerase II gene.
Description:Topoisomerase II alters the topological state of nucleic acids by passing an intact DNA helix through a transient break which generates a separate DNA helix(1,2). As a result of its double-stranded DNA passage mechanism, the enzyme can relax negatively or positively supercoiled DNA, as well as catenate/decatenate or knot/unknot DNA molecules. Topoisomerase II has an absolute requirement for divalent cation and ATP (or dATP).
