Regulation of Calcium Signaling by the Second Messenger Cyclic Adenosine Diphosphoribose (cADPR)
This review will focus on the effects of cADPR in different cells and tissues, the mechanisms of cADPR-mediated Ca2+ release and Ca2+ entry, extracellular effects of cADPR, and the role of cADPR in a cell system studied in detail, human T-lymphocytes.

- Current Molecular Medicine is an interdisciplinary journal focused on providing the readership with current and comprehensive reviews on fundamental molecular mechanisms of disease pathogenesis, the development of molecular-diagnosis and/or novel approaches to rational treatment. The reviews should be of significant interest to basic researchers and clinical investigators in molecular medicine. Periodically the journal will invite guest editors to devote an issue on a basic research area that shows promise to advance our understanding of the molecular mechanism(s) of a disease or has potential for clinical applications.
