Detection of Mouse CD38 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of mouse spleen tissue, mouse colon tissue, and mouse splenocytes. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Mouse CD38 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4947) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for CD38 at approximately 45 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Detection of Mouse CD38 by Simple WesternTM. Simple Western lane view shows lysates of mouse spleen tissue, loaded at 0.2 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for CD38 at approximately 64 kDa (as indicated) using 10 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Mouse CD38 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4947) followed by 1:50 dilution of HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the 12-230 kDa separation system.

CD38, also known as ADP-ribosyl cyclase and cyclic ADP-ribose hydrolase, is a Type II integral membrane protein. The enzyme is able to transform NAD(P)+ into three different products with calcium mobilizing ability; cyclic ADP-ribose, NAADP+, and ADP-ribose (1). CD38 is expressed in B and T lymphocytes, osteoclasts, and in cardiac, pancreatic, liver and kidney cells (2, 3). Through its production of cyclic ADP-ribose, CD38 modulates calcium-mediated signal transduction in many types of cells, including neutrophils and pancreatic beta cells (4, 5). CD38 has been shown to regulate oxytocin secretion, and may be involved in the development of complex social behaviors in mammals (6).
