Why is it important?

These results could be exploited to understand the conserved signaling modules in Dictyostelium and the mammalian system thereby opening new research avenues in the field of PARP-1 biology.


This report thus provides the first evidence wherein ADPRT1A, PARP-1 ortholog is specifically shown to be involved in controlling cell growth and cell cycle in D. discoideum.
