General description

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is an enzymatic cofactor involved in many redox reactions. NAD functions as an electron carrier, cycling between the oxidized (NAD) and reduced (NADH) forms. In addition to its role in redox reactions, NAD plays critical roles in ADP (adenosine diphosphate)-ribosylation reactions and as a substrate for sirtuins.


NAD/NADH Quantitation Kit has been used to quantify NAD+/NADH influenced by SIRT1 (sirtuin 1) activity (associated with ischemia-reperfusion injury) in the presence of trimetazidine.


Suitable for the detection of NADH and NAD in animal tissues (liver, kidney etc.), cell culture (adherent or suspension cells), serum or urine.


The NAD/NADH Quantification Kit provides a convenient tool for sensitive detection of the intracellular nucleotides, NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) and NADH, and their ratio without the requirement to purify NAD/NADH from samples. This assay is specific for NAD and NADH, and does not detect NADP or NADPH. NADt (NAD and NADH) or NADH are quantified in a colorimetric assay (450 nm).

Aerobic Glycolysis and the Warburg Effect

The Warburg effect is the enhanced conversion of glucose to lactate observed in tumor cells, even in the presence of normal levels of oxygen. Otto Heinrich Warburg demonstrated in 1924 that cancer ce...

Glutamine Metabolism is Dysregulated in Many Cancer Cells

Proliferatively active cells require both a source of carbon and of nitrogen for the synthesis of macromolecules. Although a large proportion of tumor cells utilize aerobic glycolysis and shunt metab...
