A report on Adenosine triphosphate, Cofactor (biochemistry) and Glycolysis
The free energy released in this process is used to form the high-energy molecules adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH).- Glycolysis
It is also a precursor to DNA and RNA, and is used as a coenzyme.- Adenosine triphosphate
For example, the multienzyme complex pyruvate dehydrogenase at the junction of glycolysis and the citric acid cycle requires five organic cofactors and one metal ion: loosely bound thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP), covalently bound lipoamide and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD), cosubstrates nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) and coenzyme A (CoA), and a metal ion (Mg2+).- Cofactor (biochemistry)
Many contain the nucleotide adenosine monophosphate (AMP) as part of their structures, such as ATP, coenzyme A, FAD, and NAD+.- Cofactor (biochemistry)
ATP can be produced by a number of distinct cellular processes; the three main pathways in eukaryotes are (1) glycolysis, (2) the citric acid cycle/oxidative phosphorylation, and (3) beta-oxidation.- Adenosine triphosphate
Arthur Harden and William Young along with Nick Sheppard determined, in a second experiment, that a heat-sensitive high-molecular-weight subcellular fraction (the enzymes) and a heat-insensitive low-molecular-weight cytoplasm fraction (ADP, ATP and NAD+ and other cofactors) are required together for fermentation to proceed.- Glycolysis

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide0 links
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme central to metabolism.
This energy is transferred to NAD by reduction to NADH, as part of beta oxidation, glycolysis, and the citric acid cycle.
This contrasts with eukaryotic DNA ligases, which use ATP to form the DNA-AMP intermediate.
