Subunit of: DNA gyrase

Synonyms: Topoisomerase II

Subunit composition of DNA gyrase = [GyrA]2[GyrB]2
         DNA gyrase, subunit A = GyrA
         DNA gyrase, subunit B = GyrB (summary available)

DNA gyrase is one of two essential members of the type II topoisomerase family in E. coli. It carries out ATP-dependent supercoiling of chromosomal DNA, as well as potentially being involved in decatenation of newly synthesized chrosomal and plasmid DNA.

Gyrase consists of 2 GyrA and 2 GyrB subunits [Sugino80]. The GyrA amino-termini form a dimeric core flanked by their carboxy-terminal domains, which form spirals that wrap the target DNA [Costenaro05, Ruthenburg05]. These GyrA carboxy-terminal domains impart unidirectionality on gyrase supercoiling activity [Ruthenburg05]. The GyrB amino-terminal domain contains the gyrase ATPase activity and is the binding site for antibiotics that inhibit gyrase function [Ali93, Lewis96]. GyrB dimerizes in a "V" shape, with the amino-termini coming together at the base to form the 20 Å ATP-operated DNA-binding clamp and the carboxy-termini at the ends of the "V" involved in protein-protein interaction [Wigley91, Celia94, Brino00, Williams01]. Other studies of the full gyrase tetramer have been carried out in the presence and absence of bound substrate [Krueger90, Sissi05, Blandamer94, Morais97].

Gyrase supercoils and relaxes DNA by cleaving one duplex strand entirely and passing the other, intact DNA duplex through it. The initial gyrase cleavage leaves a staggered cut with 5' overhangs, which romain covalently attached to the GyrA subunits throughout strand transfer [Morrison79]. Indeed, inhibiting the gyrase ATPase stalls the reaction in the middle, yielding double-strand breaks with GyrA monomers attached to each 5' overhang [Sugino80, Gellert79]. DNA supercoiling appears to operate through a two-gate mechanism in which the non-cleaved DNA strand is loaded into the amino-terminal, ATP-dependent clamp formed by dimerized GyrB and then passed through the gap in the bound, cleaved strand [Williams99a, Kampranis99]. When this clamp domain is experimentally locked in the closed conformation, gyrase is no longer able to supercoil DNA, but can still carry out a single relaxation reaction [Williams01]. Each round of supercoiling represents a calculated free energy change of 2.6 kJ/mol and requires ATP [Cullis92, Sugino80a]. The mechanics of gyrase function, including its response to tension in DNA, have been examined at the molecular level [Gore06].

In addition to supercoiling and relaxing DNA, gyrase can also separate catenated DNA, straighten knotted DNA and act in deletion of a region flanked by direct repeats [Marians87, Mizuuchi80, MiuraMasuda90].

Gyrase activity is required for DNA synthesis and replication fork progression [Fairweather80, Khodursky00, Smelkova01].

Gyrase binds a 120-bp area, with DNA apparently wrapped around the enzyme [Fisher81]. The minimum duplex length for gyrase action is about half that, at 50-60 bp, although it is much less efficient at this length [Belotserkovskii06]. Although there are no canonical cleavage sequences for gyrase, a TG doublet is present at most cut sites [Morrison79]. In addition, gyrase binds to repetitive extragenic palindromic (REP) sequences 10 times more effectively than to random DNA [Yang88a].

Gyrase activity is halted by the toxic plasmid-encoded protein CcdB, which interacts with GyrA to wedge gyrase open, locking it in its ATP-bound form [Kampranis99a, DaoThi05, Smith06a]. A crystal structure of CcdB has been determined [Loris99].

Gyrase supercoiling activity is regulated by the inhibitor protein GyrI; for more information, see DNA gyrase inhibitor. Glutamate racemase also modulates gyrase supercoiling activity [Ashiuchi02].
