The architecture of restriction enzymes

David T F Dryden

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this issue of Structure, Lyumkis and colleagues describe a high resolution structure of a polymerized form of the SgrAI restriction enzyme, which shows that it forms a helical assembly with four enzyme molecules per turn of the helix. The DNA is arranged on the periphery of the protein helix pointing away from the helical axis.
