DNA gyrase and its complexes with DNA: direct observation by electron microscopy

Cell (1985), Volume: 41, Issue: 3, Pages: 933-43
Electron microscopy of DNA gyrase holoenzyme, of gyrase A subunits, and of the complexes of both species with DNA enables us to deduce the relative locations of subunits in the holoenzyme and to indicate a plausible path for DNA complexed with gyrase. The structural results are discussed in terms of certain models for directional DNA strand transport.
