IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 5.99.1.3

Names

Accepted name:
DNA topoisomerase (ATP-hydrolysing)
Other names:
DNA topoisomerase II
DNA-gyrase
deoxyribonucleate topoisomerase
deoxyribonucleic topoisomerase
topoisomerase
type II DNA topoisomerase
DNA gyrase
Systematic name:
DNA topoisomerase (ATP-hydrolysing)

Reaction

Comments:

The enzyme can introduce negative superhelical turns into double-stranded circular DNA. One unit has nicking-closing activity, and another catalyses super-twisting and hydrolysis of ATP (cf. EC 5.99.1.2 DNA topoisomerase).
