We studied the mutation effect of one of the putative loop residues Thr792 in human DNA topoisomerase IIα (TOP2α). Thr792 mutants were expressed from high or low copy plasmids in a temperature sensitive yeast strain deficient in TOP2 (top2-1). When expressed from a high copy plasmid, mutants with small side chains complemented the yeast defect; however, from a low copy plasmid, only wild-type, Ser, and Cys substitution mutants complemented the yeast defect. Interestingly, at the permissive temperature other mutants (e.g., Val, Gly, and Glu substitutions) showed the dominant negative effect to the top2-1 allele, which was not observed by the control α4-helix mutants. T792E mutant was 10-fold less active than wild-type and the T792P had no decatenation activity in vitro. These results suggest that Thr792 in human TOP2α is involved in enzyme catalysis.
