DescriptionAmide form of vitamin B3
Amide form of vitamin B3. Plasma membrane and blood-brain barrier permeable. Precursor for β-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+). Essential for the synthesis of NAD+ phosphate (NADP+). Essential for energy metabolism, normal physiology and disease progression. Associated with a number of signaling pathways including oxidative stress, cell survival and inflammation. These effects are orchestrated partly through forkhead, Akt, Bad, caspase, MAPK and PARP signaling. Non-selective sirtuin inhibitor. Commonly used as 3D growth matrix components and additive for long-term growth.
Storage instructionsStore at Room Temperature. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Solubility overviewSoluble in DMSO to 100 mM and in ethanol to 100 mM
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
