CD38; also called ADP-ribosyl cyclase; is a Type II integral membrane protein with 301 amino acids in length that belongs to the ADP-ribosyl cyclase family.It synthesizes the second messagers cyclic ADP-ribose and nicotinate-adenine dinucleotide phosphate; the former a second messenger for glucose-induced insulin secretion. And also moonlights as a receptor in cells of the immune system. CD38 is expressed in B and T lymphocytes; osteoclasts; and in cardiac; pancreatic; liver and kidney cells. Through its production of cyclic ADP-ribose; CD38 modulates calcium-mediated signal transduction in many types of cells; including neutrophils and pancreatic beta cells.
Recombinant Human CD38 is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Val43-Ile300 is expressed with a mFc tag at the C-terminus.
