The yeast pathogen Candida glabrata is a nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) auxotroph and its growth depends on the environmental supply of vitamin precursors of NAD+. C. glabrata salvage pathways defined in this article allow NAD+ to be synthesized from three compounds – nicotinic acid (NA), nicotinamide (NAM) and nicotinamide riboside (NR). NA is salvaged through a functional Preiss–Handler pathway. NAM is first converted to NA by nicotinamidase and then salvaged by the Preiss–Handler… 
The Leishmania nicotinamidase is essential for NAD+ production and parasite proliferation
TLDR
The results illustrate that NAD+ homeostasis is a fundamental component of Leishmania biology and virulence, and that NAm constitutes its main NAD+ source in the mammalian host.
High-Affinity Transporters for NAD+ Precursors in Candida glabrata Are Regulated by Hst1 and Induced in Response to Niacin Limitation
TLDR
Transcript profiling is used to characterize the transcriptional response to niacin limitation and the roles of the sirtuins Hst1, Hst2, and Sir2 in mediating this response and it is shown that three highly induced genes, TNA1, TNR1, and TNR2, encode transporters which are necessary and sufficient for high-affinity uptake of NAD+ precursors.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae YOR071C Encodes the High Affinity Nicotinamide Riboside Transporter Nrt1*
TLDR
Deletion of a single gene, YOR071C, fully restores nicotinamide riboside import and utilization when resupplied to mutant yeast cells and extends replicative life span on high glucose medium.
The Evolutionary Portrait of Metazoan NAD Salvage
TLDR
It is shown that NAMPTs and PNCs are simultaneously active, raising the possibility that NAD salvage pathways are not redundant as both are maintained to fulfill the requirement for NAD production in some species.
Assimilation of Endogenous Nicotinamide Riboside Is Essential for Calorie Restriction-mediated Life Span Extension in Saccharomyces cerevisiae*
TLDR
It is demonstrated that salvaging endogenous NmR is an integral part of NAD+ metabolism, and the results suggest that partitioning of the pyridine nucleotide flux between the classical salvage cycle and the Nmr salvage branch might be modulated by the NAD+-dependent Sir2 deacetylase.
Microbial NAD Metabolism: Lessons from Comparative Genomics
TLDR
Biochemical, genetic, and genomic analyses have advanced to the point at which the precursors and pathways utilized by a microorganism can be predicted, and challenges remain in dissecting regulation of pathways.
Nicotinamide Riboside and Nicotinic Acid Riboside Salvage in Fungi and Mammals
TLDR
It is demonstrated that so-called uridine hydrolase is 100-fold more active as a nicotinamide riboside Hydrolase than as a uridineHydrolase and that mammalian purine nucleoside phosphorylase but not methylthioadenosine phosphoryLase is responsible for mammalian nicotinic acid Riboside kinase-independent nicotinism ribosid utilization.
Chemo-enzymatic synthesis of isotopically labeled nicotinamide riboside.
TLDR
This study developed a chemo-enzymatic synthesis of isotopically labeled NAD+ precursor, nicotinamide riboside (NR), which unambiguously determine that NR is efficiently converted to NAD+ in the cellular environment independent of degradation to Nicotinamide, and it is incorporated into NAD+, in its intact form.

Is a NAD pyrophosphatase activity necessary for Haemophilus influenzae type b multiplication in the blood stream?
TLDR
N of type b Eagan strains is involved in NAD uptake and in processing NAD to NR, which appears to be the substrate for an as yet unidentified cytoplasmic membrane NR transport system, and H. influenzae type b nadN mutants are able to survive in vivo in the five-day-old infant rat model of human invasive disease.
Assimilation of Nicotinamide Mononucleotide Requires Periplasmic AphA Phosphatase in Salmonella enterica
TLDR
Salmonella enterica can obtain pyridine from exogenous nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) by three routes, but route 3 is seen only in pnuC* transporter mutants, which import NMN intact and can therefore grow on lower levels of NMN.
Identification and functional analysis of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae nicotinamidase gene, PNC1
TLDR
It is suggested that NAMase helps yeast cells to adapt to various stress conditions and nutrient depletion, most likely via the activation of NAD‐dependent biological processes.
Nicotinic Acid Limitation Regulates Silencing of Candida Adhesins During UTI
TLDR
It is shown that normally silent EPA genes are expressed during murine urinary tract infection (UTI) and that the inducing signal is the limitation of nicotinic acid (NA), a precursor of Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+).
Conversion of a cosubstrate to an inhibitor: phosphorylation mutants of nicotinic acid phosphoribosyltransferase.
TLDR
The mutant NAPRTases fail to carry out ATPase, autophosphorylation, or ADP/ATP exchanges seen with wild-type (WT) enzyme, but do catalyze the slow formation of NAMN in the absence of ATP with rates and KM values similar to those of WT.

NAD+-Dependent Deacetylase Hst1p Controls Biosynthesis and Cellular NAD+ Levels in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
A critical role is described of the NAD+-dependent deacetylase Hst1p as a sensor of NAD+ levels and regulator of NAD-dependent biosynthesis, suggesting that HST1p serves as a cellular NAD+ sensor that monitors and regulates cellular NAD+.
