NADPH works through a process called oxidation reduction—the transfer of electrons from one molecule to another. In this case, NADPH transfers two electrons from its hydrogens onto 1,3-BPG for reduction into glycerol 3-phosphate. This oxidation reaction produces energy which helps power cellular activities such as movement, growth and reproduction. Additionally, because NADPH contains reactive oxygen species (ROS) these ROS can interact with other molecules during the reaction producing free radicals which can cause oxidative damage if produced in excessive amounts; however when closely monitored by living cells these ROS are essential for helping carry out important metabolic processes such as Photosynthesis and Respiration.
