Synthesis and utility of 14C-labeled nicotinamide cofactors.


A new method for the synthesis of the reduced form of beta-nicotinamide [U-14C]adenine dinucleotide 2(')-phosphate([Ad-14C]NADPH) is presented. The present synthesis results in a radioactive material with a specific activity that is greater than 220 mCi/mmol. This method could easily be adapted for syntheses of 14C-labeled NADH, NADP(+), or any nicotinamide… (More)
