Human topoisomerase II – DNA decatenation assay
Human DNA topoisomerase II alpha converts the concatenated DNA into decatenated DNA. ProFoldin offers the Human DNA topoisomerase II assays in two assay formats: Spin-column-based DNA decatenation assay and 96-well filter plate–based DNA decatenation assay. In the spin-column-based DNA decatenation assay, the decatenated DNA is separated from the concatenated DNA by a quick and easy spin-column process. The concatenated DNA stays on the column, while the decatenated DNA is eluted. The eluted DNA is quantified by fluorescence. In the 96-well filter plate–based DNA decatenation assay, the decatenated DNA is separated from the concatenated DNA by a filtration process. The decatenated DNA passed through the filter (TDD filter plate), received in a 96 well plate and quantified by fluorescence at 535 nm (excitation at 485 nm).
