Topoisomerase II alpha is an essential nuclear enzyme involved in DNA replication and a target for many of the clinically useful antineoplastic agents. In a mitoxantrone-selected human leukemia cell line, HL-60/MX2, cellular topoisomerase II (topo II) catalytic activity is decreased, in association with the finding of reduced nuclear topo II alpha and beta protein levels. In addition, HL-60/MX2 cells contain a novel M(r) 160,000 topo II alpha-related protein that localizes predominantly to the… CONTINUE READING
