Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the formation of nicotinamide ribose diphosphate ribose (NAmRDPR) by Aspergillus niger. nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) contains two β-riboside linkages potentially susceptible to hydrolytic cleavage. Generally, NAD is degraded at the nicotinamide-ribose linkage by NAD glycohydrolases that are widely distributed in microorganisms. However, Aspergillus niger characteristically possesses another route for NAD degradation. The enzyme preparation of… Expand
