The modification of nuclear proteins by ADP-ribosylation.


When incubated in vitro purified mouse nuclei incorporate NAD into poly(ADP-Rib). Analysis of the product on CsDl/urea gradients showed that a large proportion of the poly(ADP-Rib) was not attached to protein. The free poly(ADP-Rib) did not appear to arise through degradation and its chain length was significantly longer than the poly(ADP-Rib) attached to… (More)
