    Thank you for requesting me to answer your question. I hope that this will be of help to you:

    The energy - requiring process that the oxidation of NAD2H to NAD is coupled to is called "reduction", specifically, reduction of NAD to NAD2H .It is energy requiring, yet important for the cell because :
    1. Without the reduction reaction, the NAD molecules, which are hydrogen ...
