Evidence for an intermediate in quinolinate biosynthesis in Escherichia coli
TLDR
Results of these experiments indicate that the nadB gene product forms an unstable compound from aspartate in the presence of flavine adenine dinucleotide, and that this compound is then condensed with dihydroxyacetone phosphate to form quinolinate in a reaction catalyzed by the n adA gene product.
