Fluorescent sensors of PARP-1 structural dynamics and allosteric regulation in response to DNA damage


Poly(ADP-ribose) (PAR) is a posttranslational modification predominantly synthesized by PAR polymerase-1 (PARP-1) in genome maintenance. PARP-1 detects DNA damage, and damage detection is coupled to a massive increase PAR production, primarily attached to PARP-1 (automodification). Automodified PARP-1 then recruits repair factors to DNA damage sites. PARP-1… (More)
