DNA Topoisomerase IV MeSH Descriptor Data 2024

MeSH Heading
DNA Topoisomerase IV
Tree Number(s)
Unique ID
RDF Unique Identifier
Scope Note
A bacterial DNA topoisomerase II that catalyzes ATP-dependent breakage of both strands of DNA, passage of the unbroken strands through the breaks, and rejoining of the broken strands. Topoisomerase IV binds to DNA as a heterotetramer consisting 2 parC and 2 parE subunits. Topoisomerase IV is a decatenating enzyme that resolves interlinked daughter chromosomes following DNA replication.
