Alkaloid synthesis pathway with the measured metabolite contents in three different organs (LL: lower leaf, UL: upper leaf, R: root) from field-grown plants. A622, an enzyme proposed to form a coupling-competent nicotinic acid intermediate; AO, L-aspartate oxidase; BBL, berberine bridge enzyme-like protein; MPO, methylputrescine oxidase; NAD, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide; NND, nicotine N-demethylase; PMT, putrecine N-methyltransferase; QPT, quinolinate phosphoribosyltransferase; QS, quinolinate synthase
