A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Topoisomerase I (Top1) activities are sensitive to various endogenous base modifications, and anticancer drugs including the natural alkaloid camptothecin. Here, we show that triple helix-forming oligonucleotides (TFOs) can enhance Top1-mediated DNA cleavage by affecting either or both the nicking and the closing activities of Top1 depending on the position and the orientation of the triplex DNA structure relative to the Top1 site. TFO binding 1 bp downstream from the Top1 site enhances cleavage by inhibiting religation and to a lesser extent DNA nicking. In contrast, TFO binding 4 bp downstream from the Top1 site enhances DNA nicking especially when the 3′ end of the TFO is proximal to the Top1 site. However, when the orientation of the triplex is inverted, with its 5′ terminus 4 bp downstream from the Top1 site, religation is also inhibited. These position- and orientation-dependent effects of triplex structures on the Top1-mediated DNA cleavage and religation are discussed in the context of molecular modeling and effects of TFO on DNA twist and mobility at the duplex/triplex junction.
