A novel ATP-dependent DNA unwinding enzyme, called human DNA helicase VI (HDH VI), was purified to apparent homogeneity from HeLa cells and characterized. From 327 g of cultured cells, 0.44 mg of pure enzyme was recovered, free of DNA polymerase, ligase, topoisomerase, nicking and nuclease activities. The enzyme behaves as a monomer having an M(r) of 128… (More)
Human DNA helicase IV, a novel enzyme, was purified to homogeneity from HeLa cells and characterized. The activity was measured by assaying the unwinding of 32P labeled 17-mer annealed to M13 ss DNA. From 440g of HeLa cells we obtained 0.31 mg of pure protein. Helicase IV was free of DNA topoisomerases, DNA ligase and nuclease activities. The apparent… (More)
A neonate presented with abdominal mass in left flank was investigated and operated upon. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of clear cell sarcoma of the kidney. Post-operatively, chemotherapy was given according to the NWTS-5 protocol. During follow-up, the patient has shown good recovery after 7 months of surgery.
