Nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (Nampt) is a rate-limiting enzyme for synthesis of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide in mammalian cells.Recent studies show that Nampt also works as a cytokine that exerts insulin-mimetic effects by binding to the insulin receptor,induces B-cell differentiation,inhibits neutrophil apoptosis,and affects immune and inflammatory functions.This review is focused on current knowledge regarding the structure and function of Nampt and its roles in carcinogenesis.

烟酰胺磷酸核糖转移酶(Nampt)是哺乳动物细胞合成烟酰胺腺嘌呤二核苷酸的限速酶; Nampt也是一种细胞因子,如作为一种新的具有结合并激活胰岛素受体、模拟胰岛素作用的脂肪细胞因子,调控B细胞分化、延缓中性粒细胞凋亡、参与炎症和免疫应答。本文就Nampt的结构、功能及其与肿瘤关系的研究进展作一综述。
