The flexibility and topology of simian virus 40 DNA in minichromosomes.


The linking number of DNA in minichromosomes increases by 2 turns during SV40 assembly. Changes in temperature also influence the average linking number of the total intracellular forms of SV40 DNA. When the isolated minichromosomes assembled in vivo are incubated with topoisomerase I at 33 degrees C in vitro, the linking number of SV40 DNA decreases. This… (More)
