[The role of niacin in regulating the pentosophosphate pathway and production of NADP-H in fatty tissue].

Abstract

A study was made of the effect of alimentary deficiency of niacin and of exogenous nicotinamide (500 mg/kg) on the activity of the key enzymes of the pentose phosphate pathway and NADP-dependent malate and isocitric dehydrogenase in the epididymal fatty tissue of rats.
