The NADH molecule is known to participate in glycolysis. NAD+, on the other hand, is formed in succeeding processes such as the fermentation process. If you look closely, one noticeable difference between these two forms is the presence of a positive charge in NAD+. Actually, NAD+ and NADH are of the same core compound: Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. This is used as a coenzyme in many reactions.
NAD+ is the _____ form of NADH while NADH is the _____ form of NAD+.
A. product; substrate
B. oxidized; reduced
C. substrate; product
D. cation; anion
E. reduced; oxidized
