Western blot analysis HepG2 cell lysate (35 ug) with NMNAT1 monoclonal antibody, clone AT4A2 (Cat # MAB9716) at 1 : 1000 dilution. Proteins were visualized using a goat anti-mouse secondary antibody conjugated to HRP and an ECL detection system.
The coenzyme NAD and its derivatives are involved in hundreds of metabolic redox reactions and are utilized in protein ADP-ribosylation, histone deacetylation, and in some Ca(2+) signaling pathways. NMNAT (EC 188.8.131.52) is a central enzyme in NAD biosynthesis, catalyzing the condensation of nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) or nicotinic acid mononucleotide (NaMN) with the AMP moiety of ATP to form NAD or NaAD (Zhang et al., 2003 [PubMed 12574164]).[supplied by OMIM
