Type II DNA topoisomerases are enzymes that are capable of transporting one duplex DNA through another. Recent experimental results, including the structure of a fragment of yeast topoisomerase II, have provided new insights into the mechanism of the strand passage reaction. Other results have begun to define the role of ATP in the catalytic cycle and illuminate how DNA breaks mediated by topoisomerase II can occur.
