Monday's Molecule #23

Name this molecule. It's related to last week's theme on pyruvate and pyruvate dehydrogenase.

As usual, there's a connection between Monday's molecule and this Wednesday's Nobel Laureate. This one's got something to do with the type of reactions that involve today's molecule. The prize (free lunch) goes to the person who correctly identifies both the molecule and the Nobel Laureate. (Previous free lunch winners are ineligible for one month from the time they first won.)

  1. Flavin adenine trinucleotide or FAD! And, umm, Otto Warburg?

  2. Can I edit my answer a bit - obviously that's supposed to be flavin adenine dinucleotide...
