Poly(ADP-ribose): a co-regulator of DNA methylation?


Althaus, F R (2005). Poly(ADP-ribose): a co-regulator of DNA methylation? Oncogene, 24(1):11-12.

Abstract

The formation of multiprotein complexes is l'ordre du jour in regulatory pathways. In this issue of Oncogene, Reale et al. report the formation of a particularly sophisticated complex of two important regulatory enzymes, DNMT1 (DNA methyltransferase-1) and PARP-1 (poly(ADP-ribose)polymerase-1). The former evolved with a specific sequence motif binding the enzymatic product of the latter. The product, poly(ADP-ribose), bonds the two partners into a heterodimeric complex and, as a consequence, the catalytic function of DNMT1 is silenced. Thus, PARP-1 becomes a conditional negative regulator of DNMT1. In a larger perspective, Reale et al. highlight the potential role of PARP-1 as a co-regulator of DNA methylation leading to epigenetic reprogramming of cancer cells.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
