Index 3-Hydroxybutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase

In enzymology, a 3-hydroxybutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are (''S'')-3-hydroxybutanoyl-CoA and NADP+; its 3 products are acetoacetyl-CoA, NADPH, and H+. [1]

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate, abbreviated NADP or, in older notation, TPN (triphosphopyridine nucleotide), is a cofactor used in anabolic reactions, such as lipid and nucleic acid synthesis, which require NADPH as a reducing agent.
