Type II DNA topoisomerases relax topological stress by transiently gating DNA passage in a controlled cut-and-reseal mechanism that affects both DNA strands. Therefore, they are essential to overcome topological problems associated with DNA metabolism. Their aberrant activity results in the generation of DNA double-strand breaks, which can seriously compromise cell survival and genome integrity. Here, we profile the transcriptome of human-telomerase-immortalized retinal pigment epithelial 1 (RPE-1) cells when treated with merbarone, a drug that catalytically inhibits type II DNA topoisomerases. We performed RNA-Seq after 4 and 8 h of merbarone treatment and compared transcriptional profiles versus untreated samples. We report raw sequencing data together with lists of gene counts and differentially expressed genes.

DNA topoisomerase II (TOPII) plays a very important role in DNA topology and in different biological processes such as DNA replication, transcription, repair, and chromosome condensation in higher eukaryotes. TOPII has been found to interact directly with a protein called topoisomerase II binding protein 1 (TopBP1) which also seems to have important roles in DNA replication and repair. In this study, we conducted different experiments to assess the roles of TopBP1 in DNA repair, mitosis, and meiosis, exploring the relationship between TOPII activity and TopBP1. We found that topbp1 mutant seedlings of Arabidopsis thaliana were hypersensitive to cisplatin treatment and the inhibition of TOPII with etoposide produced similar hypersensitivity levels. Furthermore, we recognised that there were no significant differences between the WT and topbp1 seedlings treated with cisplatin and etoposide together, suggesting that the hypersensitivity to cisplatin in the topbp1 mutant could be related to the functional interaction between TOPII and TopBP1. Somatic and meiotic anaphase bridges appeared in the topbp1 mutant at similar frequencies to those when TOPII was inhibited with merbarone, etoposide, or ICFR-187. The effects on meiosis of TOPII inhibition were produced at S phase/G2 stage, suggesting that catenanes could be produced at the onset of meiosis. Thus, if the processing of the catenanes is impaired, some anaphase bridges can be formed. Also, the appearance of anaphase bridges at first and second division is discussed.

Pyrimido-pyrimidine derivatives have been developed as rigid merbarone analogues. In a previous study, these compounds showed potent antiproliferative activity and efficiently inhibited topoisomerase IIα. To further extend the structure-activity relationships on pyrimido-pyrimidines, a novel series of analogues was synthesized by a two-step procedure. Analogues 3-6 bear small alky groups at positions 1 and 3 of the pyrimido-pyrimidine scaffold whereas at position 6a (4-chloro)phenyl substituent was inserted. The basic side chains introduced at position 7 were selected on the basis of the previously developed structure-activity relationships. The antiproliferative activity of the novel compounds proved to be affected by both the nature of the basic side chain and the substituents on the pyrimido-pyrimidine moiety. Derivatives 5d and 5e were identified as the most promising molecules still showing reduced antiproliferative activity in comparison with the previously prepared pyrimido-pyrimidine analogues. In topoisomerase IIα-5d docking complex, the ligand would poorly interact with the enzyme and assume a different orientation in comparison with 1d bioactive conformation.
