Role of PARP3 in normal continuos and stress-induced neurogenesis in brain.

Poly(ADP-ribosyl)ation is a post-translational modification of proteins mediated by Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerases (PARPs). PARPs catalyse the transfer and polymerisation of ADP-ribose units from NAD+ to form a ramified polymer, the poly(ADP-ribose) (PAR), covalently linked to acceptor proteins or...
