Description:

CD38 is a 45 kD type II transmembrane ADP-ribosyl cyclase expressed on early hematopoietic precursors and leukocytes, hepatic stellate cells, astrocytes and epithelial cells. CD38 expression can be upregulated upon cell activation. CD38 catalyzes the production of cyclic APD ribose, which is important in Ca2+ release. CD38 induces production of proinflammatory cytokines and proliferation. The ligand for CD38 is CD31. Impairment in CD38 expression is associated with immunological and behavioral disorders.

Other Names: T10 , ADP-ribosyl cyclase
