Catalysis of an Oxidation Reduction (redox) Reaction a Reversible Chemical Reaction in Which the Oxidation State of an Atom or Atoms Within a Molecule Is Altered. One Substrate Acts As a Hydrogen or Electron Donor and Becomes Oxidized While the Other Acts As Hydrogen or Electron Acceptor and Becomes Reduced.
Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate a Coenzyme Involved in Many Redox and Biosynthetic Reactions; Binding May Be to Either the Oxidized Form Nadp+ or the Reduced Form Nadph.
