Back to article: Cleavage-defective Topoisomerase I mutants sharply increase G-quadruplex-associated genomic instability

TABLE 1. Top1 mutants studied. Catalytic Top1 mutants (Y723F/Y727F and W736Stop/Y740Stop) can bind but not cleave duplex DNA while DNA binding mutants (T729E/S733E) cannot bind duplex DNA.
