About this book

DNA Topoisomerase Protocols is an unprecedented collection of cutting-edge experimental protocols for investigating DNA structure, topology, and DNA topoisomerase function. Described by expert experimentalists who have perfected the techniques, these time-proven methods utilize new approaches to study changes in DNA topology (linking number, knotting, catenation, and relaxation) and DNA structure (bending), as well as to assess chromosome structure through FLP-mediated recombination and to analyze bacterial nucleoid structure. State-of-the-art protocols also detail the expression and purification of bacterial, viral, and eukaryotic DNA topoisomerases from a variety of sources, including baculovirus, bacterial, yeast, and mammalian expression systems. invaluable practical aid. The central and expanding role of these enzymes in basic cell biology together with their important pharmaceutical applications will ensure that book will remain relevant for some years to come. - Cell Biology International 2000 The introductory chapter by the editors gives a beautifully brief and concise overview of the entire family of DNA topoisomerases and related enzymes and can be used as an Ariadne's thread to the key papers of the field. Another useful item is the appended compendium of topoisomerase sequences, which is likely to be helpful in designing expression vectors, deletion mutants, etc. Most of the other chapters contain a lot of useful information and easily followed procedures.a very valuable addition to the topoisomerase literature. It summarizes a lot of useful information for those engaged or getting engaged in research on DNA topology or topoisomerases. Those just wanting to carry out some of the analytical procedures will in most cases find what they need, i.e. a concise delineation of the analytical background, some detailed and easy to follow protocols, and a comprehensive guideline for the interpretation of the results. As such, the book definitely deserves a place on many laboratory shelves - FEBS Letters The introductory chapter is one of the most concise and clearly presented summaries of our current knowledge that has been written, and it will be useful even for experts in the field. The volume concludes with a well-organized and useful compendium of toposomerase DNA sequences. Volume I is clearly a valuable source of methodological expertise for anyone studying topoisomerases. - New Biological Books We recommend greatly this remarkable book to all our readers, without exception. - Cellular and Molecular Biology
