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)
