Our aim is to decipher the complex role of poly(ADP-ribosyl)ation reactions in the mechanisms governing genome stability and tumorigenesis. Regulation of poly(ADP-ribose) produced by PARPs in response to DNA damages and degraded by PARG is critical for the outcome of the damaged cell.
PARP-1 inhibitors are already engaged in clinical trials for the treatment of certain cancers. Our recent data have revealed an essential role of PARP-3 and PARG in the DNA damage response and in mitotic progression, designing these two enzymes as potential therapeutic targets in cancer therapies.
