Human CD38 (His & FLAG Tag) recombinant protein
The cluster of differentiation (CD) system is commonly used as cell markers in immunophynotyping. Different kinds of cells in the immune system can be identified through the surface CD molecules which associating with the immune function of the cell. There are more than 320 CD unique clusters and subclusters have been identified. Some of the CD molecules serve as receptors or ligands important to the cell through initiating a signal cascade which then alter the behavior of the cell. Some CD proteins do not take part in cell signal process but have other functions such as cell adhesion. Cluster of differentiation 38 (CD38), also known as ADP-ribosyl cyclase, is a glycoprotein found on the surface of many immune cells (white blood cells), including CD4+, CD8+, B and natural killer cells. It shares several characteristics with ADP-ribosyl cyclase 2 CD157. CD38 is a multifunctional ectoenzyme that catalyzes the synthesis and hydrolysis of cyclic ADP-ribose (cADPR) from NAD+ to ADP-ribose. It also functions in cell adhesion, signal transduction and calcium signaling. CD38 has been used as a prognostic marker in leukemia. It can also be used to identify plasma cells.

Protein short names
ADPRC1; T10; CD38-RS1; CD38
A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain of human CD38 (NP_001766.2) (Val 43 – Ile 300) was fused with a polyhistidine tag and a flag tag at the N-terminus.
The secreted recombinant human CD38 comprises 285 amino acids with a predicted molecular mass of 33.2 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, rhCD38 migrates as an approximately 42-45 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
