StrainBaker's yeast
DescriptionNicotinamide ribotide, also known as NMN, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as nicotinamide nucleotides. These are pyridine nucleotides, in which the pyridine base is nicotinamide or a derivative thereof. Nicotinamide ribotide is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Nicotinamide ribotide exists in all eukaryotes, ranging from yeast to humans. Within yeast, nicotinamide ribotide participates in a number of enzymatic reactions. In particular, nicotinamide ribotide can be biosynthesized from nicotinamide riboside through its interaction with the enzyme nicotinamide riboside kinase. In addition, nicotinamide ribotide can be converted into NAD through its interaction with the enzyme nicotinamide/nicotinic acid mononucleotide adenylyltransferase. In yeast, nicotinamide ribotide is involved in the metabolic pathway called the nad metabolism pathway.
