Sources/Uses

A biologically active form of nicotinic acid; [Merck Index] "A coenzyme composed of ribosylnicotinamide 5'-diphosphate coupled to adenosine 5'-phosphate by pyrophosphate linkage. It is found widely in nature and is involved in numerous enzymatic reactions in which it serves as an electron carrier by being alternately oxidized (NAD+) and reduced (NADH). (Dorland, 27th ed)" [ChemIDplus] "Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, abbreviated NAD+, is a coenzyme found in all living cells." [Wikipedia]
