Structural identification of autoinducer of Photobacterium fischeri luciferase.
Synthesis of bacterial luciferase in some strains of luminous bacteria requires a threshold concentration of an autoinducer synthesized by the bacteria and excreted into the medium. AutoinducerExpand

Cyclic ADP-ribose production by CD38 regulates intracellular calcium release, extracellular calcium influx and chemotaxis in neutrophils and is required for bacterial clearance in vivo
Cyclic ADP-ribose is believed to be an important calcium-mobilizing second messenger in invertebrate, mammalian and plant cells. CD38, the best-characterized mammalian ADP-ribosyl cyclase, isExpand

Regulation of dendritic cell trafficking by the ADP-ribosyl cyclase CD38: impact on the development of humoral immunity.
Mice lacking CD38, an ectoenzyme that generates the calcium-mobilizing metabolite cADPR, make reduced T cell-dependent antibody responses. Despite the predicted role for CD38 in B cell activation, weExpand

Mechanism of Nicotinamide Inhibition and Transglycosidation by Sir2 Histone/Protein Deacetylases*
Silent information regulator 2 (Sir2) enzymes catalyze NAD+-dependent protein/histone deacetylation, where the acetyl group from the lysine ϵ-amino group is transferred to the ADP-ribose moiety ofExpand

Activation of T Cell Calcium Influx by the Second Messenger ADP-ribose*
Stimulation of Jurkat T cells by high concentrations of concanavalin A (ConA) induced an elevation of the endogenous adenosine diphosphoribose (ADPR) concentration and an inward current significantlyExpand

CD38 Controls ADP-Ribosyltransferase-2-Catalyzed ADP-Ribosylation of T Cell Surface Proteins1
ADP-ribosyltransferase-2 (ART2), a GPI-anchored, toxin-related ADP-ribosylating ectoenzyme, is prominently expressed by murine T cells but not by B cells. Upon exposure of T cells to NAD, theExpand

Chemotaxis and Calcium Responses of Phagocytes to Formyl Peptide Receptor Ligands Is Differentially Regulated by Cyclic ADP Ribose1
Cyclic ADP ribose (cADPR) is a calcium-mobilizing metabolite that regulates intracellular calcium release and extracellular calcium influx. Although the role of cADPR in modulating calciumExpand

Mechanism of Cyclizing NAD to Cyclic ADP-ribose by ADP-ribosyl Cyclase and CD38*♦
Mammalian CD38 and its Aplysia homolog, ADP-ribosyl cyclase (cyclase), are two prominent enzymes that catalyze the synthesis and hydrolysis of cyclic ADP-ribose (cADPR), a Ca2+ messenger moleculeExpand
