Summary of "PARP3 comes to light as a prime target in cancer therapy."

Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase 3 (PARP3) is the third member of the PARP family that catalyse a post-translational modification of proteins to promote, control or adjust numerous cellular events including genome integrity, transcription, differentiation, cell metabolism or cell death. In the late years, PARP3 has been specified for its primary functions in programmed and stress-induced double-strand break repair, chromosomal rearrangements, transcriptional regulation in the zebrafish and mitotic segregation. Still, deciphering the therapeutic value of its inhibition awaits additional investigations. In this review, we discuss the newest advancements on the specific functions of PARP3 in cancer aggressiveness exemplifying the relevance of its selective inhibition for cancer therapy.

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.

Treatment using irradiation with light of low power intensity so that the effects are a response to the light and not due to heat. A variety of light sources, especially low-power lasers are used.

A performance measure for rating the ability of a person to perform usual activities, evaluating a patient's progress after a therapeutic procedure, and determining a patient's suitability for therapy. It is used most commonly in the prognosis of cancer therapy, usually after chemotherapy and customarily administered before and after therapy. It was named for Dr. David A. Karnofsky, an American specialist in cancer chemotherapy.
