Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase mRNA levels were studied in hepatic regeneration following partial hepatectomy, and in hyperplasia induced by the mitogen lead nitrate.

Abstract

Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase mRNA levels were studied in hepatic regeneration following partial hepatectomy, and in hyperplasia induced by the mitogen lead nitrate. A significant increase in the level of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase mRNA was found 8 h after partial hepatectomy when no detectable increase of DNA synthesis could be observed; the level of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase transcripts increased up to six-fold within 1-2 days. A similar increase of the level of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase mRNA was found 24 h after treatment with lead nitrate. A twofold increase in poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase activity was observed 2 days after (a) partial hepatectomy and (b) lead nitrate treatment. From these results an important role of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase in cell proliferation could be suggested.
