Need help!!!

Postby cuteisa123 » Fri Mar 30, 2007 2:41 am

Hi,
I'm doing a project on protein topoisomerase. I need to find 5 binding partners (that is, other proteins) and their affinity to topoisomerase. Any help would appreciate it! Thank you!!!

What is topoisomerase? :? It is an enzyme indeed, but what's the specific function?

DNA topisomerase... You may also know it as DNA gyrase... It prevents supercoiling of DNA...
