Nicotinate and Nicotinamide Analysis Service

Online Inquiry


Nicotinate and nicotinamide are precursors of the nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) and its phosphorylated form, NADP+,which are essential for redox reactions and carry electrons from one reaction to another. NAD+ synthesis happens either in vivo from amino acids or a salvage pathway from nicotinamide. The savage pathway is typically found in mammals. The specificity of the in vivo pathway varies among organisms, but most start by forming quinolinic acid (QA) from tryptophan (Trp) in animals. The salvage pathway involves recycling nicotinamide and nicotinamide-containing molecules like nicotinamide riboside. NAD+ and NADP+ act as cofactors in multiple reduction-oxidation (redox) reactions related to energy production, glycolysis, the tricarboxylic acid cycle, oxidative phosphorylation and fatty acid oxidation. The alterations of nicotinate and nicotinamide metabolism is associated with multiple human diseases like cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

Creative Proteomics has developed an LC-MS method for the determination of nicotinate and nicotinamide. Methanol and 0.05% formic acid aqueous solution were used as mobile phases for elution. The electrospray ionization source (ESI) was selected for selective positive ion detection with high specificity, sensitivity and linearity. We aim to provide you with accurate analytical results and accelerate the progress of your project.
