Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) plays an important role in a variety of cell metabolic reactions and is an important support for cell viability. However, with the increase of age, the level of NAD will continue to decrease, and the metabolic capacity of cells will also be affected. Although scientists have found that the production of NAD in cells begins with a precursor molecule called nicotinamide mononucleotide NMN, the transport mechanism of NMN has been found after many experiments in cells and mice.
Studies have shown that SLC12A8 protein can directly transport NMN into cells with the help of sodium ions, and play a role in the production of NAD. When nad level decreased, the cells also enhanced the expression of SLC12A8 gene and increased their ability to transport NMN.
