Studies on human and mouse systems have shown that NAMPT genes can encode the enzyme nicotinamide 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate transferase, which catalyzes the rate-limiting step in nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide biosynthesis, and that NAMPT is preferentially secreted by visceral fat tissue [52].
In the NAD biosynthetic pathway from nicotinamide, iNampt catalyzes the transfer of a phosphoribosyl group from 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate to nicotinamide, forming nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) and pyrophosphate [15].
