Purpose of reviewNicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a classic coenzyme in cellular redox reactions. Recently, NAD biochemistry has also been implicated in a broader range of biological functions in mammals, but the regulation of NAD biosynthesis has been poorly investigated. Recent progress in the field of NAD biochemistry has fueled new interest in the NAD biosynthetic pathways from its precursors and their physiological roles in metabolism. This review summarizes the latest knowledge… Expand

Interventional Clinical Trial
The purpose of this study is to assess an effective single oral supplement or combination of oral supplements for increasing whole blood NAD+ levels.  
ConditionsIncrease in Blood Levels of Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+)
InterventionDietary Supplement
Nicotinamidase modulation of NAD+ biosynthesis and nicotinamide levels separately affect reproductive development and cell survival in C. elegans
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (Nampt), the equivalent enzyme in nicotinamide recycling to NAD+ in vertebrates, can functionally substitute for PNC-1, and postulate an evolutionarily conserved extracellular role for NAD+ biosynthetic enzymes during development and physiology. Expand
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. Expand
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide metabolism as an attractive target for drug discovery
TLDR
The existing knowledge on NAD+ metabolic enzymes is summarized, with emphasis on their relevance for drug discovery, and inhibitors against kynurenine 3-hydroxylase are summarized. Expand

The aim of this review is to present an overview of the biological production of NMN with respect to the critical enzymes, reaction conditions, and productivity. Expand
Genomics and Enzymology of NAD Biosynthesis
TLDR
This chapter highlights the recent findings about genes, enzymes, pathways, and transcriptional regulators of NAD biosynthesis and illustrates the application of the comparative genomic approach to projecting the acquired knowledge across several diverse species with completely sequenced genomes. Expand
Interplay between compartmentalized NAD+ synthesis and consumption: a focus on the PARP family.
TLDR
NAD+ metabolism is discussed, how different subcellular pools of NAD+ are established and regulated, and how free NAD+ levels can control signaling by PARPs and redox metabolism. Expand
Nampt: linking NAD biology, metabolism and cancer
TLDR
Nampt seems to have another function as an immunomodulatory cytokine and, therefore, has a role in inflammation. Expand
Review: NAD + : A modulator of immune functions
TLDR
An efficient supply of NAD+ seems to be a crucial need for a multitude of cell functions, underlining the yet only partly revealed potency of this small molecule to influence cell fate. Expand
Phosphate-responsive Signaling Pathway Is a Novel Component of NAD+ Metabolism in Saccharomyces cerevisiae*
TLDR
It is shown that the phosphate-responsive signaling (PHO) pathway contributes to control NAD+ metabolism and mediates nicotinamide mononucleotide catabolism, thereby contributing to both NmR salvage and phosphate acquisition. Expand
Nampt/PBEF/Visfatin regulates insulin secretion in beta cells as a systemic NAD biosynthetic enzyme.
TLDR
It is shown that eNampt does not exert insulin-mimetic effects in vitro or in vivo but rather exhibits robust NAD biosynthetic activity, suggesting a vital framework for the regulation of glucose homeostasis. Expand
