Type IIA topoisomerases are multidomain enzymes composed of four major domains: the ATPase domain, the TOPRIM domain, the DNA-cleavage/religation domain and the C-terminal domain (CTD). Although crystal structures of the first three domains are available, the three-dimensional structure of the less-conserved CTD has yet to be determined. In order to provide a three-dimensional structure of this structurally uncharacterized region, the 36 kDa CTD of ParC protein, the DNA-cleavage/religation subunit of topoisomerase IV, from Bacillus stearothermophilus has been cloned, purified and crystallized. The crystals belonged to the trigonal space group P3(1) (or P3(2)), with unit-cell parameters a = b = 83.5, c = 45.1 A. The asymmetric unit contains one molecule and the solvent content is 51.2%. A 98.9% complete native data set has been collected from a frozen crystal to 2.0 A resolution with an overall R(merge) of 6.5%.
