2',5'-oligoadenylates inhibit relaxation of supercoiled DNA by calf thymus DNA topoisomerase I.


DNA topoisomerases interconvert various topological isomers of DNA and play key roles in replication and gene expression. The possible involvement of the 2',5'-oligoadenylates (2-5A) system in cell growth, regulation, and cell differentiation led us to investigate the effects of 2-5A on mammalian topoisomerases. We found that the calf thymus type I… (More)
