Beta-NADPH Tetrasodium Salt

NADPH is a cofactor, used to donate electrons and hydrogens to reactions catalyzed by some enzymes. Typically enzymes involved in anabolic pathways that create large molecules use NADPH, while enzymes involved in the breakdown of molecules use the analog NADH. Both plants and animals use NADPH and NADH, and they are typically segregated into organelles and cytosol.
