- ... CD38 is a 42–45kDa transmembrane glycoprotein that exhibits ADP-ribosyl cyclase enzyme activity. In the rat, we have previously reported strong ADP-ribosyl cyclase activity in the sublingual salivary gland (Masuda W. and Noguchi T. Biochem. Biophys. Res. Commun. (2000) 270, 469–472). Here, we have examined the specific localization of CD38/ADP-ribosyl cyclase activity in this gland and whether tha ...
