TNKS

Human tankyrases (TNKS; EC 2.4.2.30), or TRF1-interacting ankyrin-related ADP-ribose polymerases, are specific PARPs that enhance telomerase access to telomeres, and post-translationally modify multiple proteins involved in processes including maintenance of telomere length, sister telomere association, and trafficking of glut4-containing vesicles.[1],[2]. Tankyrase 1 and tankyrase 2 are poly(ADP-ribosyl)ases that are distinguishable from other members of the enzyme family by the structural features of the catalytic domain, and the presence of a sterile α-motif multimerization domain and an ankyrin repeat protein-interaction domain[3].
