Poly adenosine diphosphate ribose polymerase (PARP) is a family of 17 enzymes that combine several (poly) units of ADP-ribose in a chain and transfer them to the target proteins. These proteins aid in restoring the damage in DNA caused due to various factors such as exposure to UV rays, radiation, some anti-cancer drugs or other substances in the environment.
