Abstract

We report the cloning and cDNA sequence of rat CD38, ADP-ribosyl cyclase / cyclic ADP-ribose hydrolase. Rat CD38 is composed of 303 amino acids and shares a high degree of homology with human and mouse CD38. Rat CD38 mRNA is expressed in various tissues including pancreatic islets but not in RINm5F cells.
