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 is an ubiquitous DNA cleaving enzyme and an important therapeutic target in cancer chemotherapy for the camptothecins as well as for indolocarbazole antibiotics such as rebeccamycin and its synthetic derivatives, which stabilize the cleaved DNA-topoisomerase I complex. The covalent linkage of a triple helixforming oligonucleotide to camptothecin or to the indolocarbazole derivative R-6 directs DNA cleavage by topoisomerase I to specific sequences. Sequence-specific recognition of DNA is achieved by the triple helix-forming oligonucleotide, which binds to the major groove of double-helical DNA and positions the drug at a specific site. The efficacy of topoisomerase I-induced DNA cleavage mediated by the rebeccamycin-conjugate and the camptothecin-conjugate was compared and related to the intrinsic potency of the isolated drugs.
