Enzyme Commission Primary Name: NAD+ synthase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: NAD synthetase, NAD synthase, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide synthetase, diphosphopyridine nucleotide synthetase
A reaction in the biosynthesis of NAD. Glutamine can also serve as an amido group donor.
Enzyme Commission Summary:
L-Glutamine also acts, more slowly, as amido-donor [cf. EC 184.108.40.206].
