nic·o·tin·a·mide mon·o·nu·cle·o·tide (NMN),

(nik'ā-tin'ă-mīd mon'ō-nū'klē-ō-tīd),
A condensation product of nicotinamide and ribose 5-phosphate, linking the N of nicotinamide to the (β) C-1 of the ribose; in NAD+, the ring is linked by the 5'-phosphoryl residue of the ribose moiety to the 5'-phosphoryl residue of AMP; a precursor in the synthesis of NAD+.
