From Wikipedia

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate, abbreviated NADP or, in older notation, TPN (triphosphopyridine nucleotide), is a cofactor 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.
