β-Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) plays a major role in metabolism as a cofactor and mobile electron acceptor. NAD+is a required oxidizing cosubstrate for many enzymes. It is reduced toNADH (Cat# N-035)which carries electrons to the electron transport chain for subsequent oxidative phorphorylation and ATP production. NAD+is capable of donating ADP-ribose moieties to a protein, producing nicotinamide in the process. Sirtuin enzymes use NAD+as a substrate to deacetylate proteins and direct activity between the nucleus and mitochondria. NAD+is regenerated by fermentation and by oxidative phosphorylation.
