nicotinamide mononucleotide
A condensation product of nicotinamide and ribose 5-phosphate, linking the N of nicotinamide to the (β) C-1 of the ribose; in NAD+, the ring is linked by the 5′-phosphoryl residue of the ribose moiety to the 5′-phosphoryl residue of AMP; a precursor in the synthesis of NAD+.

* * *
