Literature References: One of the biologically active forms of nicotinic acid, q.v. Occurs in living cells primarily in the oxidized state. Serves as a coenzyme of the dehydrogenases, especially in the dehydrogenation of primary and secondary alcohols. NAD usually acts as a hydrogen acceptor, forming NADH which then serves as a hydrogen donor in the respiratory chain. Isoln from erythrocytes: O. Warburg, W. Christian, Biochem.
