Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate or NADPH is a reduced coenzyme that plays a key role in the synthesis of carbohydrates in photosynthetic organisms. It is the reduced form of NADP+ and as such is a high energy molecule that helps drive the Calvin cycle. NADPH is formed during photosynthesis with the use of light energy in the electron transport chain of chloroplasts. It then represents an energy currency that can be used in the Calvin cycle and subsequent reactions to produce carbohydrates.
