- nicotinate + 5-phospho-alpha-D-ribose 1-diphosphate + ATP + H2O nicotinate D-ribonucleotide + diphosphate + ADP + phosphate
Thus, the four substrates of this enzyme are nicotinate, 5-phospho-alpha-D-ribose 1-diphosphate, ATP, and H2O, whereas its four products are nicotinate D-ribonucleotide, diphosphate, ADP, and phosphate.
This enzyme belongs to the family of ligases, specifically those forming generic carbon-nitrogen bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is 5-phospho-alpha-D-ribose 1-diphosphate:nicotinate ligase (ADP, diphosphate-forming) . Other names in common use include niacin ribonucleotidase, nicotinic acid mononucleotide glycohydrolase, nicotinic acid mononucleotide pyrophosphorylase, and nicotinic acid phosphoribosyltransferase. This enzyme participates in nicotinate and nicotinamide metabolism.
