ADP-ribosyl cyclase synthesizes the secondary messenger cyclic ADP-ribose from NAD+. Diffraction quality crystals of the enzyme from ovotestes of Aplysia californica have been obtained. Crystallographic analysis of this enzyme will yield insight into the mode of binding of the novel cyclic nucleotide and the mechanism by which NAD+ is cyclized.
