Hi, I'm Michael Maidaa and this is what enzyme reactions do nucleotides create. Nucleotides are incorporated into several coenzymes that are important in several different enzymatic reactions. I will be discussing three major ones. The first one being coenzyme A. Coenzyme A requires an assisting nucleotide and it's responsible for the oxidation of fatty acids. It is also responsible for the citric acid cycle, two very important reactions in the body. The next one is FAD which contains an Adenine nucleotide and this is responsible for several different metabolic reactions. And finally, we have NAD which is a coenzyme requiring an Adenine nucleotide. NAD is also responsible for several metabolic reactions in which it acts as a redox agent so it can oxidize and reduce different molecules. So looking back, we have coenzyme A, FAD and NAD. All of these require nucleotides and responsible for different enzymatic reactions. I'm Michael Maidaa and this has been what enzyme reactions require nucleotides.
