Allosteric NAMPT Activators for Metabolic and Neurological Disorders
This invention relates to a novel method of increasing the catalytic activity of the enzyme, nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT), which in turn increases the production of nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) that is converted to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD). This process to increase supply of NAD in the body is accomplished using...
