Summaries for NAMPT Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NAMPT Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that catalyzes the condensation of nicotinamide with 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate to yield nicotinamide mononucleotide, one step in the biosynthesis of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. The protein belongs to the nicotinic acid phosphoribosyltransferase (NAPRTase) family and is thought to be involved in many important biological processes, including metabolism, stress response and aging. This gene has a pseudogene on chromosome 10. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2011]

GeneCards Summary for NAMPT Gene

NAMPT (Nicotinamide Phosphoribosyltransferase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NAMPT include idiopathic recurrent pericarditis and pericarditis. Among its related pathways are Disease and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include cytokine activity and nicotinate phosphoribosyltransferase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NAMPT Gene

  • Catalyzes the condensation of nicotinamide with 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate to yield nicotinamide mononucleotide, an intermediate in the biosynthesis of NAD. It is the rate limiting component in the mammalian NAD biosynthesis pathway. The secreted form behaves both as a cytokine with immunomodulating properties and an adipokine with anti-diabetic properties, it has no enzymatic activity, partly because of lack of activation by ATP, which has a low level in extracellular space and plasma. Plays a role in the modulation of circadian clock function. NAMPT-dependent oscillatory production of NAD regulates oscillation of clock target gene expression by releasing the core clock component: CLOCK-ARNTL/BMAL1 heterodimer from NAD-dependent SIRT1-mediated suppression (By similarity).

Function for NAMPT Gene

Molecular function for NAMPT Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity: Nicotinamide D-ribonucleotide + diphosphate = nicotinamide + 5-phospho-alpha-D-ribose 1-diphosphate
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot EnzymeRegulation: Inhibited by FK866. FK866 competes for the same binding site as nicotinamide, but due to its very low dissociation rate, it is essentially an irreversible inhibitor.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function: Catalyzes the condensation of nicotinamide with 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate to yield nicotinamide mononucleotide, an intermediate in the biosynthesis of NAD. It is the rate limiting component in the mammalian NAD biosynthesis pathway. The secreted form behaves both as a cytokine with immunomodulating properties and an adipokine with anti-diabetic properties, it has no enzymatic activity, partly because of lack of activation by ATP, which has a low level in extracellular space and plasma. Plays a role in the modulation of circadian clock function.
