human nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (visfatin, human)

a 52 kDa protein; a growth factor for early B-LYMPHOCYTES; later identified to be nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase, an enzyme that catalyzes the condensation of nicotinamide with 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate yielding nicotinamide mononucleotide, the rate limiting step in the biosynthesis of coenzyme NAD
Also Known As:
visfatin, human; nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase, human; NAMPT protein, human; NAmPRTase, human; PBEF, human; pre-B-cell colony-enhancing factor, human
