This review summarizes the literature and our own data regarding the role of NAD+-glycohydrolase/CD38- controlled molecular mechanisms of hypothalamic and pituitary oxytocin secretion in social behavior regulation. Current approaches to the modulation of both CD38 expression and brain cell activity that represent prospective treatments for disorders associated with altered social behavior are discussed.

Keywords: CD38, oxytocin, social behavior.
