We have constructed partially single-stranded nucleic acid substrates consisting of RNA or DNA strands hydrogen bonded to either RNA or DNA complements. We found that ATP is utilized as a cofactor for the T-antigen-catalyzed unwinding reaction when the substrates contain overhanging single-stranded DNA, regardless of whether the double-stranded region is DNA or hybrid DNA · RNA. Conversely, non-ATP nucleotides are used when the overhanging single strand is RNA. Based on these and additional findings, we propose that the bound nucleic acid induces a conformational change in T antigen resulting in a proper orientation of both nucleic acid and nucleotide relative to the active center of the ATPase/helicase domain of the enzyme. The implications of our conclusion for the roles which T antigen may play in vivo are discussed.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-06-28T13:59:31Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Knippers, Rolf</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/42732"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Stahl, Hans</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Scheffner, Martin</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:issued>1991</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Stahl, Hans</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Knippers, Rolf</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Simian‐virus‐40 large‐T‐antigen‐catalyzed DNA and RNA unwinding reactions</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Scheffner, Martin</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
