Abstract

We report that rat RT6.2 and recombinant mouse Rt6 locus 1 proteins possess auto-ADP-ribosyltransferase activity and that Rt6, but not RT6, catalyzes the ADP-ribosylation of exogenous histones. Based on NH2OH sensitivity, it appeared that the ADP-ribose was attached to arginine residues on proteins. We also observed that the NAD+ concentration in culture medium correlates inversely with the proliferation of rat RT6+ T cells. The data suggest that lymphocyte surface ADP-ribosyltransferases could be involved in signaling and immunoregulatory processes.
