Poly(ADP-ribose) glycohydrolase (PARG) is the major enzyme responsible for the catabolism of poly(ADP-ribose), a reversible covalent-modifier of chromosomal proteins. Purification of PARG from many tissues revealed heterogeneity in activity and structure of this enzyme. To investigate PARG structure and localization, we developed a highly sensitive one-dimensional zymogram allowing us to analyze PARG activity in crude extracts of Cos-7, Jurkat, HL-60, and Molt-3 cells. In all extracts, a single PARG activity band corresponding to a protein of about 110 kDa was detected. This 110-kDa PARG activity was found mainly in cytoplasmic rather than in nuclear extracts of Cos-7 cells.
