NAD+-glycohydrolase from Streptococcus pyogenes was purified by successive chromatography on CM Sepharose CL-6B, Sephacryl S-200 HR and hydroxyapatite. The purified enzyme possessed synthesis and hydrolysis activities of cyclic ADP-ribose (cADPR), a newly found second messenger for Ca2+ mobilisation, along with cleavage activity of the ribose-nicotinamide bond in NAD+.
