DNA topoisomerase (ATP-hydrolyzing) activity

id: GO:0003918
name: DNA topoisomerase (ATP-hydrolyzing) activity
namespace: molecular_function
type: go
obsolete: False

Description: Catalysis of a DNA topological transformation by transiently cleaving a pair of complementary DNA strands to form a gate through which a second double-stranded DNA segment is passed, after which the severed strands in the first DNA segment are rejoined; product release is coupled to ATP binding and hydrolysis; changes the linking number in multiples of 2.
