Crystal Structures of Quinolinate Synthase in Complex with a Substrate Analogue, the Condensation Intermediate, and Substrate-Derived Product.
TLDR
The crystal structures of complexes between the Thermotoga maritima (Tm) NadA K219R/Y107F variant and the first intermediate (W) resulting from the condensation of dihydroxyacetone phosphate with iminoaspartate are reported, shedding significant light on the mechanism of the reaction catalyzed by NadA.

THE ENZYMATIC CONVERSION OF QUINOLINATE TO NICOTINIC ACID MONONUCLEOTIDE IN MAMMALIAN LIVER.
TLDR
The work of Nishizuka and Hayaishi clearly establishes a possible enzymatic basis for t,he conversion of tryptophan t,o niacin, but leaves unanswered several basic questions concerning this conversion.
Studies on the de novo biosynthesis of NAD in Escherichia coli. The separation of the nadB gene product from the nadA gene product and its purification.
TLDR
The facile separation of the wild-type quinolinate synthetase A and B proteins out of a nadC mutant suggests that quinolinic acid does not exists as a tightly bound complex.
d‐ASPARTATE OXIDASE ACTIVITY IN EXTRACTS OF MAMMALIAN CENTRAL NERVOUS TISSUE
Abstract— d‐Aspartate oxidase activity has been measured in water extracts of acetone powders prepared from cat forebrain, cerebellum and spinal cord, rat brain, hog brain and sheep brain stem, and
