How Is NADH Converted into NADPH?

Answer Reduced phosphorylated nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADPH) is an essential coenzyme in anabolic biosynthetic reactions in cells. It also reduces glutathione, thus limiting damage from free ra... Read More »

Top Q&A For: How Is NADH Converted into NADPH

What is the function of NADPH in photosynthesis?

NADPH is necessary for stage two of photosynthesis, the Calvin Cycle, to occur. During that cycle, NADPH reduces carbohydrate molecules into carbon-carbon bonds until they form two 3-carbon sugar p... Read More »

What Are the Benefits of Nadh?

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) is a form of niacin--one of the B vitamins. It plays a key role (precursor to CoQ) in the metabolism process that converts food into energy. NADH has been s... Read More »

Does NADH act as an electron shuttle for cellular respiration?

An electron shuttle is an agent that accepts electrons from one compound and transfers them to another. NADH, the reduced form of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide or NAD, is not the electron shutt... Read More »

Which part of cellular respiration produces the most NADH?

The Krebs cycle, also known as the citric acid cycle, produces the most NADH during the process of cellular respiration. The cycle must run twice in order to use up the main reactant, two molecules... Read More »
