Nicotinamide Riboside and Metabolic Health

2016-07-19 02:23:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study will investigate the effects of 6 week Nicotinamide Riboside supplementation (1000 mg/day) on metabolic health in healthy (pre)obese humans. The primary objective will be hepatic and whole body insulin sensitivity. Secondary objectives, to provide information about the underlying mechanism, will be muscle mitochondrial function, brown fat activity, ectopic lipid accumulation, energy metabolism, cardiovascular risk parameters, body composition and acetylcarnitine levels.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An enzyme that catalyzes the formation of nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) from nicotinamide and 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate, the rate-limiting step in the biosynthesis of the NAD coenzyme. It is also known as a growth factor for early B-LYMPHOCYTES, or an ADIPOKINE with insulin-mimetic effects (visfatin).

3-Carbamoyl-1-beta-D-ribofuranosyl pyridinium hydroxide-5'phosphate, inner salt. A nucleotide in which the nitrogenous base, nicotinamide, is in beta-N-glycosidic linkage with the C-1 position of D-ribose. Synonyms: Nicotinamide Ribonucleotide; NMN.

An enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) to NICOTINAMIDE and ADENOSINE DIPHOSPHATE RIBOSE. Some are extracellular (ectoenzymes).The enzyme from some sources also catalyses the hydrolysis of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP).

An enzyme found primarily in the LIVER that catalyzes the N-methylation of NICOTINAMIDE and other structurally related compounds.

A condition of having excess fat in the abdomen. Abdominal obesity is typically defined as waist circumferences of 40 inches or more in men and 35 inches or more in women. Abdominal obesity raises the risk of developing disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension and METABOLIC SYNDROME X.
