Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate


Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate, abbreviated NADP (or, in older notation, TPN (triphosphopyridine nucleotide)), is a coenzyme used in anabolic reactions, such as lipid and nucleic acid synthesis, which require NADPH as a reducing agent. NADPH is the reduced form of NADP. NADP differs from NAD in the presence of an additional phosphate group on the 2 position of the ribose ring that carries the adenine moiety.
