Model of the major metabolic consequences of the tab2 mutation and how it affects TAG biosynthesis. The specific alterations to metabolic flow at different times during the growth time course are indicated by colored arrows. See text for a discussion of how this model is supported by experimental evidence. Processes that are reduced or enhanced, respectively, during the early phase of N deprivation (during the first 2 days) are indicated by pink and green arrows. Processes that are significantly altered during later stages of N deprivation are indicated by blue arrows. Predicted pathways are represented by dashed lines. Not all intermediates and reactions involved are shown to make the figure easier to read
