The biosynthetic pathway of MIA in C. roseus leaves. Simplified representation of the MIA biosynthesis in C. roseus highlighting the subcellular organization of the central steps of the pathway. Known single enzymatic steps in each cell type are indicated by grey arrows and abbreviation of enzyme names. Broken grey arrows and broken pink arrows indicate unknown enzymatic steps and metabolite translocation, respectively.
