Nucleotides of Vitamins
Some B-complex vitamins from nucleotides either alone or combined with other nucleotides. They function as important coenzymes.
Vitamin Nucleotide Components
1. Nicotinamide (i) NAD+- Nicotinamide Adenine Nicotinamide-Ribose-Phosphate-Phosphate-
(ii) NADP+ Nicotinamide Adenine Nicotinamide-Ribose-Phosphate-Phosphate
Dinucleotide Phosphate Phosphoribose-Adenine
2. Riboflavin (i) FMN Flavin Mononucleotide Riboflavin-Phosphate
(ii) FAD Flavin Adenine Riboflavin-Phosphate-Phosphate-Ribose-Adenine
3. Pentothenic CoA Coenzyme A Pentothenic Acid-Mercaptoethylamine-Phosphate
Coenzyme A is useful in converting acetate, succinate and other hydrocarboxy radicals into active state for various reactions, e.g. acetyl CoA, succinyl CoA, acyl CoA.
