NAD kinase catalyzes the transfer of a phosphate group from ATP to NAD+ to generate NADP+, which in its reduced form acts as an electron donor for biosynthetic reactions. NADP+ is an essential coenzyme in metabolism and provides reducing power to biosynthetic processes such as fatty acid biosynthesis.
NADK, Recombinant (Human)
1 mg/ml of ammonium sulphate suspension.
~50 kDa (monomer). Human full length NAD kinase (aa 1-446) is fused at the N-terminus to a His-tag.
