nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate, NADP(noun)
a coenzyme similar to NAD and present in most living cells but serves as a reductant in different metabolic processes
U.S. National Library of Medicine
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate. A coenzyme composed of ribosylnicotinamide 5'-phosphate (NMN) coupled by pyrophosphate linkage to the 5'-phosphate adenosine 2',5'-bisphosphate. It serves as an electron carrier in a number of reactions, being alternately oxidized (NADP+) and reduced (NADPH). (Dorland, 27th ed)
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate, abbreviated NADP⁺ or, in older notation, TPN, is a cofactor used in anabolic reactions, such as lipid and nucleic acid synthesis, which require NADPH as a reducing agent. NADPH is the reduced form of NADP⁺. NADP⁺ differs from NAD⁺ in the presence of an additional phosphate group on the 2' position of the ribose ring that carries the adenine moiety.
