Our previous studies [1, 2] revealed that the degradation of poly(ADP-ribosyl) proteins is carried out by consecutive actions of two enzymes, poly(ADP-ribose) glycohydrolase [3, 4] and ADP-ribosyl protein lyase (formerly termed ADP-ribosyl histone splitting enzyme) [5] (Fig. 1). The latter enzyme catalyzes removal of the last proximal ADP-ribosyl residue from acceptor protein. This report presents, after a brief review of ADP-ribosyl histones and the lyase, the identification of the enzymatic split product as a novel sugar derivative, and discusses its significance in poly(ADP-ribosyl) protein metabolism.
