Which one of the following activities would LEAST likely be found in a topoisomerase? (A)cutting a phosphodiester linkage (B)inducing or relaxing twists in double-stranded DNA (C)Topoisomerases are equally likely to perform all of these functions. (D)adding nucleotides to the end of a DNA strand (E)reforming phosphodiester linkages
THIS IS THE BEST ANSWER 👇
Addition of nucleotides to the end of a DNA strand
Topoisomerases are enzymes that participate in the tights or are bound / induced or relaxed in double-stranded DNA. During DNA replication or transcription, the spin before the replication fork is generated so that these types of topo-isomerases are removed. For bacteria, topoisomerse is called gyrase.
Topoisomerases are very important for DNA replication and transcription.
