Nicotinamide Phosphoribosyltransferase

An enzyme that catalyzes the formation of nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) from nicotinamide and 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate, the rate-limiting step in the biosynthesis of the NAD coenzyme. It is also known as a growth factor for early B-LYMPHOCYTES, or an ADIPOKINE with insulin-mimetic effects (visfatin).
Also Known As:
NAMPT Protein; NAmPRTase; NMN Pyrophosphorylase; Colony-Enhancing Factor, Pre-B-Cell; Phosphoribosyltransferase, Nicotinamide; Pre B Cell Colony Enhancing Factor; Pre-B-Cell Colony-Enhancing Factor; Visfatin
