    • Function
      Involved in the base excision repair (BER) pathway, by catalyzing the poly(ADP-ribosyl)ation of a limited number of acceptor proteins involved in chromatin architecture and in DNA metabolism. This modification follows DNA damages and appears as an obligatory step in a detection/signaling pathway leading to the reparation of DNA strand breaks. Mediates the poly(ADP-ribosyl)ation of APLF and CHFR. Positively regulates the transcription of MTUS1 and negatively regulates the transcription of MTUS2/TIP150. With EEF1A1 and TXK, forms a complex that acts as a T-helper 1 (Th1) cell-specific transcription factor and binds the promoter of IFN-gamma to directly regulate its transcription, and is thus involved importantly in Th1 cytokine production. Required for PARP9 and DTX3L recruitment to DNA damage sites. PARP1-dependent PARP9-DTX3L-mediated ubiquitination promotes the rapid and specific recruitment of 53BP1/TP53BP1, UIMC1/RAP80, and BRCA1 to DNA damage sites.
    • Sequence similarities
      Contains 1 BRCT domain.
      Contains 1 PARP alpha-helical domain.
      Contains 1 PARP catalytic domain.
      Contains 2 PARP-type zinc fingers.
    • Post-translational
      Phosphorylated by PRKDC and TXK.
      Poly-ADP-ribosylated by PARP2. Poly-ADP-ribosylation mediates the recruitment of CHD1L to DNA damage sites.
      S-nitrosylated, leading to inhibit transcription regulation activity.
    • Cellular localization
      Nucleus. Nucleus, nucleolus. Localizes at sites of DNA damage.

    • Primary ab 1/50 dilution (0.5μg / Red). Secondary ab Goat anti rabbit IgG (FITC). Secondary ab concentration 1/150 dilution. Cell line Jurkat (human acute T cell leukemia) treated with (Right) or without (Left) 4μM Camptothecin for 5h. Fixative 4% paraformaldehyde. Datasheet comment Flow cytometric analysis of apoptotic and non-apoptotic Jurkat cells using anti-cleaved PARP1 RabMAb (ab32561). Jurkat cells were either left untreated (A) or treated with camptothecin (4 uM, 5 hr) to induce apoptosis (B). Cells were fixed and permeabilized, and then stained with anti-cleaved PARP1. The results indicate that 43% of cells were positive for cleaved PARP1 (B, M2) after treatment, compared to 9% positive without treatment (A, M2).

      ab32561 was shown to specifically react with PARP1 (untreated) when PARP1 (untreated) knockout samples were used. Wild-type and PARP1 (untreated) knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. Ab32561 and ab8245 (Mouse anti GAPDH loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at 1000 dilution and 1/10000 dilution respectively. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preabsorbed ab216773 and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed ab216776 secondary antibodies at 1/10000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
