Topoisomerases are a highly conserved family of enzymes found in Archaea, mammals and everything in between. They are the enzymes responsible for relieving super- and under-coiled DNA and are thus a necessary component of every self-contained organism with nucleic acids.

Our work focuses on how human topoisomerase (topo) 2α is regulated in the cell. Particularly, we are studying how SUMO modifications affect topo 2α activity and localisation through the cell cycle.
