In a yeast DNA topoisomerase double mutant TG205 (delta top1 top2-4), over half of the rDNA is present as extrachromosomal rings containing one 9 kb unit of the rDNA gene or tandem repeats of it. Expression of a plasmid-borne TOP1 or TOP2 gene in the strain leads to the integation of the extrachromosomal rDNA rings back into the chromosomal rDNA cluster.(More)
We have examined the roles of eukaryotic DNA topoisomerases I and II in DNA replication by the use of a set of four isogenic strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae that are TOP1+ TOP2+, TOP1+ top2 ts, delta top1 TOP2+, and delta top1 top2 ts. Cells synchronized by treatment with the alpha-mating factor, or by cycles of feeding and starvation, were released(More)
The TOP3 gene of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae was postulated to encode a DNA topoisomerase, based on its sequence homology to Escherichia coli DNA topoisomerase I and the suppression of the poor growth phenotype of top3 mutants by the expression of the E. coli enzyme (Wallis, J.W., Chrebet, G., Brodsky, G., Golfe, M., and Rothstein, R.

Thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repair, with its requisite intraoperative mesenteric ischemia-reperfusion, often results in the development of systemic inflammatory response syndrome, multiorgan dysfunction syndrome (MODS), and death. In the present study, an adverse clinical outcome following thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repair was identified by blood(More)
The yeast TOP3 gene, encoding DNA topoisomerase III, and EST1 gene, encoding a putative telomerase, are shown to be abutted head-to-head on chromosome XII, with the two initiation codons separated by 258 bp. This arrangement suggests that the two genes might share common upstream regulatory sequences and that their products might be functionally related. A(More)
To comprehensively understand the effects of CYP2C19 genetic polymorphisms on inhibition-based drug-drug interactions (DDIs), 18 human CYP2C19 non-synonymous single-nucleotide polymorphic variants and the wild-type isoform (CYP2C19.1A) were expressed in yeast cells. Using a fluorescence-based high-throughput method, the kinetic constants of these variants,(More)
