FAD (flavin adenine dinucleotide)

an electron carrier similar in action to NAD, picking up hydrogen from succinic acid (succinate) in the KREBS CYCLE. The hydrogen is transported to the mitochondrial cristae where it enters an ELECTRON TRANSPORT SYSTEM at a lower point than NAD, with the release of only two molecules of ATP (rather than three ATP molecules when NAD is the carrier).
