Assay Procedure
  • Assay Buffer: 50 mM HEPES, 5 mM DTT, pH 7.5
  • Recombinant Human NMNAT‑2 (rhNMNAT-2) (Catalog # 6279-NT)
  • beta -Nicotinamide mononucleotide ( beta -NMN) (Sigma, Catalog # N3501), 50 mM stock in deionized water
  • Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) (Sigma, Catalog # A7699), 10 mM stock in deionized water
  • Yeast Alcohol Dehydrogenase (ADH) (Sigma, Catalog # A3263), 5 mg/mL stock in 25 mM MES, 20% Glycerol, pH 6.5
  • 1 M Magnesium Chloride
  • 95-100% Ethanol
  • 96-well Clear Plate (Costar, Catalog # 92592)
  • Plate reader (Model: SpectraMax Plus by Molecular Devices) or equivalent
  1. Dilute rhNMNAT-2 to 0.5 ng/µL in Assay Buffer.
  2. Prepare Substrate Mixture: 30 mM MgCl2, 1 mM beta -NMN, 4 mM ATP, 0.1 mg/mL ADH, and 2% Ethanol in 50 mM HEPES, pH 7.5.
  3. In a plate, load 50 µL of 0.5 ng/µL rhNMNAT-2, and start the reaction by adding 50 µL of Substrate Mixture to wells. Include a Substrate Blank containing 50 µL Assay Buffer and 50 µL of Substrate Mixture.
  4. Read absorbance at a wavelength of 339 nm (bottom read) in kinetic mode for 5 minutes.
  5. Calculate specific activity:

     Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) =

Adjusted Vmax* (OD/min) x well volume (L) x 1012 pmol/mol
ext. coeff** (M-1cm-1) x path corr.*** (cm) x amount of enzyme (µg)

     *Adjusted for Substrate Blank 
     **Using the extinction coefficient 6220 M-1cm-1 
     ***Using the path correction 0.32 cm
     Note: the output of many spectrophotometers is in mOD Per Well:
  • rhNMNAT-2: 0.025 µg
  • Substrate Mixture: 0.5 mM beta -NMN, 2 mM ATP, 15 mM MgCl2, 0.05 mg/mL ADH, and 1% Ethanol

Humans produce three nicotinamide mononucleotide adenylyltransferase (NMNAT) enzymes. All three enzymes transfer adenylate from ATP to nicotinamide ribonucleotide or nicotinate ribonucleotide to generate NAD+ or deamido-NAD+, and are important enzymes in the NAD biosynthetic pathway (1). The three enzymes differ in tissue expression patterns and subcellular location, indicating that they each play a unique role in NAD homeostasis (2). NMNAT-2 is expressed primarily in the central nervous system and in muscle tissue in contrast to NMNAT-1, which has a broad tissue distribution (3). NMNAT-2 is found in the cytosol and Golgi complex, while NMNAT-1 is a nuclear enzyme and NMNAT-3 is mitochondrial (1). A number of studies have implicated the NMNAT proteins in cancer and neurodegenerative diseases (4). NMNAT‑2 has been shown to be essential for the maintenance of healthy axons. When the level of this labile protein falls below a critical threshold in axons, the process of axonal degeneration begins (5). The axon-protective function of NMNAT-2 is dependent on its NAD+ synthesis activity (6).
