flavin adenine dinucleotide


flavin adenine dinucleotide
Abbreviation: FAD
A co-enzyme important in various biochemical reactions. It comprises a phosphorylated vitamin B2 (riboflavin) molecule linked to AMP, and functions as a hydrogen acceptor in dehydrogenation reactions. The reduced form is oxidized back to FAD by the electron transport chain, generating two molecules of ATP per molecule of reduced FADH.
