DNA topoisomerase 2-alpha - P11388 (TOP2A_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Control of topological states of DNA by transient breakage and subsequent rejoining of DNA strands. Topoisomerase II makes double-strand breaks. Essential during mitosis and meiosis for proper segregation of daughter chromosomes. May play a role in regulating the period length of ARNTL/BMAL1 transcriptional oscillation. UniProt
Catalytic Activity
ATP-dependent breakage, passage and rejoining of double-stranded DNA. UniProt

Subunit Structure
Homodimer. Interacts with COPS5. Interacts with RECQL5; this stimulates DNA decatenation. Interacts with SETMAR; stimulates the topoisomerase activity (PubMed:18790802, PubMed:20457750). Interacts with DHX9; this interaction occurs in a E2 enzyme UBE2I- and RNA-dependent manner, negatively regulates DHX9-mediated double-stranded DNA and RNA duplex helicase activity and stimulates TOP2A-mediated supercoiled DNA relaxation activity (PubMed:12711669). Interacts with HNRNPU (via C-terminus); this interaction protects the topoisomerase TOP2A from degradation and positively regulates the relaxation of supercoiled DNA in a RNA-dependent manner. UniProt
The N-terminus has several structural domains; the ATPase domain (about residues 1-265), the transducer domain (about 266-428) and the toprim domain (455-572) (PubMed:25202966). Comparing different structures shows ATP hydrolysis induces domain shifts in the N-terminus that are probably part of the mechanism of DNA cleavage and rejoining (PubMed:25202966). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
