Poly(ADP ribose) polymerase (EC was studied using monoclonal antibodies for three different epitopes on the enzyme. The epitopes were mapped in relation to the functional domains of the protein and the inhibitory properties of the antibodies. The intranuclear and interspecies immunoreactivity of the enzyme was also investigated. The epitope of(More)
Monoclonal antibodies were developed against poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase and analyzed for their reactivity against the NAD+- and DNA-binding fragments. Two fusions were performed to obtain hybridomas and the resulting anti-poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase antibodies were further screened by characterization of their immunoglobulin light chains. Five different(More)
Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP; EC is a highly conserved nuclear enzyme present in higher eukaryotes. PARP is activated following DNA damage, is implicated in DNA repair, and its proteolysis has been shown to be an early marker of programmed cell death or apoptosis. In order to better understand the role of PARP in apoptosis and DNA repair and(More)
The recovery of the enzyme poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (pADPRp) in the nuclease- and 1.6 M NaCl-resistant nuclear subfraction prepared from a number of different sources was assessed by Western blotting. When rat liver nuclei were treated with DNase I and RNase A followed by 1.6 M NaCl, approximately 10% of the nuclear pADPRp was recovered in the(More)
Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) directed against porcine splenocyte phytohemagglutinin receptor glycoproteins were produced in BALB/c mice. Three antibody-producing, stable hybridomas were cloned and expanded in the peritoneal cavity of BALB/c mice. The mAbs (A7, B1, and H3) were purified and belong to the IgG2 subclass of immunoglobulins (kappa light chain).(More)
