A synergism between PARP1 and phosphorylated Erk mediating IEG (immediate early gene) expression has been recently reported in cerebral neurons and cardiomyocytes. Stimulation induced PARP-Erk synergism was required for IEG expression underlying synaptic plasticity and long-term memory acquisition during learning. It was similarly required for cardiomyocytes development. Here, we identified this mechanism in Erk-induced gene expression promoting proliferation. This mechanism can be targeted in malignant cells.
