The TopoisomeraseII (TopII) family is an important class of topoisomerases that produces transient 5? DNA-protein crosslinks [1, 2]. Drugs targeting these enzymes act by stabilizing the crosslinks, producing a covalent DNA-protein complex [3, 4]. Despite their clinical efficacy, drugs that target TopII (TopII poisons) may lead to negative side-effects, including secondary malignancies. The repair of TopII-DNA complexes is poorly understood. Recently, a human 5?- tyrosine phosphodiesterase (hTDP2) has been identified for the excision of TopII-DNA adducts [5, 6]. As hTDP2 repairs the cytotoxic adducts produced by TopII poisons, it is likely that effective inhibition of hTDP2 can be targeted to improve the efficacy of TopII poisons and reduce the side-effects. It has been shown that the knockdown/knockout of TDP2 activity in A549 (non-small cell lung cancer cell line, NSCLC) and DT40 cells increased sensitivity to the TopII targeting agent etoposide, demonstrating that hTDP2 can be a target for adjuvant chemotherapy [7]. Our hypothesis is effective inhibition of hTDP2 will increase the cancer cell killing efficacy of TopII poisons like etoposide [8]. Therefore, hTDP2 inhibitor screening, especially in a high-throughput manner, will expedite drug discovery.
