DNA Topoisomerase Protocols: Enzymology & Drugs by Neil Osheroff, Mary-Ann Bjornsti

By Neil Osheroff, Mary-Ann Bjornsti

An exceptional number of state-of-the-art experimental protocols for investigating the catalytic actions of DNA topoisomerases, in addition to their particular interactions with topoisomerase-targeted antitumor and antibacterial medicinal drugs. defined by way of specialist experimentalists who've perfected the concepts, those unfailingly reproducible tools contain assays for enzyme-catalyzed DNA relaxation/supercoiling, DNA cleavage, DNA nicking, DNA decatenation, and ATP hydrolysis. numerous changed DNA substrates, used to dissect enzyme mechanisms by way of trapping intermediates, also are defined. Methodologies to figure out the motion of topoisomerase-targeted medicines comprise biochemical assays of drug-induced enzyme-DNA complexes, equipment for assaying drug uptake, and cell-based assays for deciding on the specificity and mechanisms of drug resistance. A spouse quantity, DNA Topoisomerase Protocols, I: DNA Topology and Enzymes, offers state of the art experimental protocols for investigating DNA constitution, topology, and DNA topoisomerase functionality.

Capillary Electrophoresis in Chiral Analysis

Capillary Electrophoresis in Chiral research Bezhan Chankvetadze Tbilisi nation college, Republic of Georgia the applying of capillary electrophoresis (CE) to the sector of chiral research has exploded lately. the benefits of capillary electrophoresis - super excessive top potency, first-class compatibility with organic samples, brief research time, simplicity, versatility and coffee fee - are ideal for the exact dimension of optical purity, more and more very important within the regulation-ruled pharmaceutical undefined.

Recent Advances in Redox Active Plant and Microbial Products: From Basic Chemistry to Widespread Applications in Medicine and Agriculture

Nature endows us with a treasure chest of eco-friendly Gold filled with striking ‘redox-active’ components which intervene with a number of organic methods in our personal physique, in animals, micro organism, fungi and crops. when such normal items are throughout and likewise in us, we nonetheless don't absolutely know how those compounds really paintings.

Oxford Handbook of Clinical Pharmacy

Now totally up-to-date for a moment variation, the Oxford guide of medical Pharmacy continues to be the indispensible advisor to medical pharmacy, delivering all of the info wanted for practicing and scholar pharmacists. featuring convenient useful suggestions in a quick-reference, bullet-point structure, it is going to provide the data and self belief you must supply a scientific pharmacy provider.

Handbook of polymers for pharmaceutical technologies. Volume 4, Bioactive and compatible synthetic/hybrid polymers

Polymers are probably the most attention-grabbing fabrics of the current period discovering their functions in nearly each facets of lifestyles. Polymers are both without delay to be had in nature or are chemically synthesized and used based upon the particular purposes. Advances in polymer technology and the creation of recent polymers have ended in the numerous improvement of polymers with detailed houses.

Introduction In “inventing” reverse gyrase, the living world has built a unique and remarkably sophisticated enzyme that is more than a simple topoisomerase.

PBR322 is commercially available, is readily propagated in E. coli, and is a substrate for gyrase from a variety of sources. The following sections describe the isolation of supercoiled pBR322, preparation of relaxed pBR322 substrate, and its use in the supercoiling assay. 2. 1. Isolation of Supercoiled pBR322 from E. coli 1. 5 with 5 M NaOH. For solid media, add 15 g/L of agar.
