to free nicotinamide. Many intestinal bacteria
have high nicotinamide deamidase activity, and
a signifi cant proportion of dietary nicotinamide
may be deamidated in the intestinal lumen. Both
nicotinic acid and nicotinamide are absorbed from
the small intestine by a sodium-dependent saturable

En la nomenclatura química, el nombre correcto para la enzima que cataliza la escisión hidrolítica del enlance C–N en una carboxamida no es ‘desamidasa’ (¡y mucho menos deamidasa!), sino amidasa.
