S. aureus Topoisomerase IV

>

Topo IV (from Staphylococcus aureus) is prepared by overexpressing the subunits in E. coliand purifying them by methods developed in-house.

The subunits are purified to >95% purity as judged by SDS-PAGE. The topo IV is supplied as a heterotetramer complex  in Dilution buffer.

It is recommended that the enzyme is aliquoted to avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. Store at -80ºC.

All enzyme is supplied with 5X concentrated Assay Buffer and Dilution buffers which are also available separately.

See technical documents below for more detailed information and lot specific activities.

S. aureus Topoisomerase IV ATPase kit

>

These kits can be used to test the effects of potential ATPase inhibitors. For example, the coumarin drugs such as novobiocin inhibit the action of topoisomerase IV by competitively inhibiting the hydrolysis of ATP thus preventing supercoiling.

These assays are microtitre plate-based and thus large numbers of compounds can be screened in a relatively short period of time. They also continuous assays which can provide more information than an end point assay.
