Abstract

A partial DNA duplex containing a high efficiency topoisomerase I cleavage site was substituted singly at each of three sites with 3'- deoxyadenosine. Depending on the site of substitution, the facility of the topoisomerase I-mediated cleavage or ligation reactions was altered. Inclusion of the modified nucleoside at the 5'-end of the acceptor oligonucleotide diminished the rate of religation following substrate cleavage by the enzyme.
