Unformatted text preview: tively supercoiled DNA
X-shaped hairpin structure called a cruciform
left-handed helix (Z-DNA) 4. Which of the following statements about nucleosomes is NOT correct?
they contain proteins with high levels of Asn and Gln residues
they constitute a major packing structure for DNA, approximately 80 Å in diameter
the nucleosome core particle consist of approximately 146 bp of DNA wrapped
around histone octomers: (H2A)2, (H2B)2, (H3)2, (H4)2
the nucleosome introduces negative superhelicity into mammalian DNA
nucleosome particles must be disassembled and reassembled during replication
and transcription 5. Which of the following statements about topoisomerases is NOT correct?
type I –topoisomerases catalyze the relaxation of supercoiled DNA by
changing the linking number in increments of one
the prokaryotic type II topoisomerase, DNA gyrase, is inhibited by:
N HN c.
6. type II topoisomerases make transient double stranded breaks in DNA
transient, covalently modified Tyr residues are formed by both type I and II
type I topoisomerases require the hydrolysis of ATP to complete a reaction cycle, but
type II enzymes do not Examine the Figure of the eukaryotic replisome below. Which of...
