To clarify the properties of adenosine triphosphate sensitive K+ channel in human detrusor smooth muscle we examined the effect of the representative nicotinic acid derivatives β-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, cyclic adenosine diphosphate ribose and nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (Sigma-Aldrich®) on...

The concept advanced by Berridge and colleagues that intracellular Ca(2+)-stores can be mobilized in an agonist-dependent and messenger (IP(3))-mediated manner has put Ca(2+)-mobilization at the center stage of signal transduction mechanisms. During the late 1980s, we showed that Ca(2+)-stores can...

Inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) is thought to be a second messenger for intracellular calcium mobilization. However, in a cell-free system of islet microsomes, cyclic adenosine diphosphate-ribose (cADP-ribose), a nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) metabolite, but not IP3, induced calcium release. In digitonin-permeabilized...

The transmembrane enzyme CD38, a multifunctional protein ubiquitously present in cells, is the main enzyme that synthesizes and hydrolyzes cyclic adenosine 5'-diphosphate-ribose (cADPR), an intracellular Ca(2+)-mobilizing messenger. CD38 is thought to be a type II transmembrane protein with its carboxyl-terminal...
