What is the importance of NADPH?

NADPH is used in catabolic and anabolic reactions within the cell. Reduction and oxidation reactions occur and NADPH is used to dispose of excess reducing equivalents such as electrons. A major source of NADPH is the pentose phosphate pathway. The action of NADPH aids against ROS.
