Abstract

Background: Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is an essential coenzyme that plays crucial roles in energy metabolism, DNA repair and cell death. Due to the high proliferation rate and the high energy necessity in cancer cells, NAD biosynthesis and salvage is required. Owing to the NAD importance in cancer cells, NAD salvage/recycling enzymes are targets for drug discovery.
