If you are not familiar with what NAD and FAD are, it is likely that you have not worked with chemicals before. NAD refers to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. FAD refers to Flavin Adenine Dinucleotide. Both of these are known to be electron carriers. NAD can be found in all beings that are alive.
FAD can also be found in living things but the main difference between the two is the accommodation of different hydrogens. FAD will accommodate up to two hydrogens while the NAD can only accommodate one hydrogen. Take note that there may be reductions that will take place when mixed with different chemicals.
You may not be aware of what NAD and FAD are. There are both known to be electron carriers, and they are expected to do many different roles. FAD stands for Flavin Adenine Dinucleotide whole NAD stands for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide.
NAD is known to be found in almost all living beings and is needed by the body, while FAD is known to contribute to a lot of metabolic reactions that are available. The main difference between the two is the number of hydrogen atoms that can accommodate. FAD can get up to two hydrogens, but NAD can only accommodate one. These two are both very useful in the Krebs Cycle.
