Problem: NAD+ is a coenzyme for many enzymes involved in redox reactions. This means that A) NAD+ has an active siteB) All enzymes involved in redox reactions bind NAD+C) Enzymes that use NAD+ as a coenzyme will not function properly if NAD+ is not available. D) NAD+ is an inhibitor of many enzymes involved in redox chemistry.

NAD+: receives electrons (reduced) to become NADH

: oxidizing agent/oxidant in metabolic processes

: loosely bound to enzyme since it needs to travel to the mitochondria
