Reverse gyrase is a type IA topoisomerase, found in various hyperthermophiles and promotes ATP-dependent positive supercoiling of DNA. Electron microscopy combined with single particle analyses revealed the three-dimensional structure of the DNA-free Sulfolobus tokodaii reverse gyrase and two-dimensional average images of both the protein alone and that complexed with double-stranded DNA. The 23A resolution map exhibited a parallelogrammatic morphology of 110 x 87 x 43A, which is in good… CONTINUE READING
