GeneCards Summary for PARP8 Gene

PARP8 (Poly(ADP-Ribose) Polymerase Family Member 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and NAD metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include NAD+ ADP-ribosyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PARP6.

Tocris Summary for PARP8 Gene

  • Poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) catalyzes the post-translational modification of proteins by the addition of multiple ADP-ribose moieties. PARP transfers ADP-ribose from nicotinamide dinucleotide (NAD) to Glu/Asp residues on the substrate protein.
