In human airway smooth muscle (HASM) cells, the expression of CD38, which synthesizes the calcium-mobilizing molecule cyclic ADP-ribose, is augmented by TNF-alpha, a cytokine implicated in asthma. We(More)
CD38 is a membrane-bound protein involved in the synthesis and degradation of cyclic-ADP-ribose (cADPR). cADPR mobilizes calcium from intracellular stores in airway smooth muscle cells. To determine(More)
The ADP-ribosyl cyclase activity of CD38 generates cyclic ADP-ribose, a Ca(2+)-mobilizing agent. In human airway smooth muscle (HASM) cells, TNF-α mediates CD38 expression through mitogen-activated(More)
