Abstract

Nicotinic acid can be regarded as an important connecting link between primary and secondary metabolism in higher plant cells. Being a constituent of the pyridine nucleotide cycle it is a precursor and a degradation product of NAD and NADP which play a decisive role as coenzymes of oxidation-reduction reactions (Waller and Nowacki 1978, Wagner and Wagner 1985).
