Nicotine Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate (NADP)

Science / Biology / Nicotine Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate (NADP): A substance to which electrons are transferred from photosystem I during photosynthesis; the addition of the electrons reduces NADP, which acquires a hydrogen ion to form NADPH, which is a storage form of energy that can be transferred to the Calvin Cycle for the production of carbohydrate.

Phosphate

Science / Chemistry / Phosphate: 1. The PO4-3 ion. 2. A compound containing the PO4-3 ion. MORE

Organophosphates

Business / Agriculture / Organophosphates: Insecticides that contain phosphorus, carbon, and hydrogen. They are cholinesterase inhibitors: some are highly acutely toxic, but they usually are not persistent in the environment. Parathion is an e MORE

Phosphate Group

Science / Biology / Phosphate Group: A chemical group composed of a central phosphorous bonded to three or four oxygens. The net charge on the group is negative. MORE
