General description

Nicotinamide (NAM) belongs to vitamin B family and is the amide form of vitamin B3. NAM is present in food and is a constituent of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP). Tryptophan is the precursor for NAM synthesis in liver. NAM controls cell metabolism, redox reactions, mitochondrial functionsand energy generation. It promotes natural killer cells proliferation and survival. NAM confers neuroprotection and promotes neuronal maturation. It has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and may provide protection in ischaemic stroke and traumatic brain injury. NAM may elicit therapeutic benefits in Alzheimer′s, Parkinson′s, and Huntington′s diseases.

Application

Nicotinamide has been used as a medium supplement in organoid culture of intestinal stem cells, esophageal squamous cell carcinomas(ESCC), pancreatic cancer organoids and pancreatic progenitor induction.

Packaging

100, 500 g in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Oxidative stress is mediated, in part, by reactive oxygen species produced by multiple cellular processes and controlled by cellular antioxidant mechanisms such as enzymatic scavengers or antioxidant modulators. Free radicals, such as reactive oxygen species, cause cellular damage via cellular.
