Description

Nicotinamide phosphoribosyl transferase (NAMPT) catalyses the condensation of nicotinamide with 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate to yield nicotinamide mononucleotide, an intermediate in the biosynthesis of NAD [PMID: 19149599, PMID: 19109034]. NAMPT is also known as pre-B cell colony-enhancing factor (PBEF) or visfatin.
