Vitamin B8 is the nucleic acid adenylic acid, also known as ergadenylic
acid. Its deficiency decreases RNA synthesis, as well as ADP and ATP synthesis.
A deficiency will inhibit the breakdown of food into energy and deteriorate
hormone functions. This substance was not widely recognized as a required vitamin.
The term "vitamin B8" was later reused by some researchers to denote
Co Enzyme A
In Studies: also known as AMP, Vitamin BH, muscle adenylic acid, ergadenylic acid, t-adenylic acid, NSC-20264, Adenyl, Cardiomone, Cardiomone sodium salt, Lycedan, My-B-Den, Myoston, Phosaden. Its forms are: adenylic acid and adenosine monophosphate (AMP). Deficiencies are recorded as being a decreased synthesis of RNA, ADP, and ATP, a deterioration of the breakdown of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, and a deterioration in hormone function.
