In an effective theory containing only quark degrees of freedom, such as the extended Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model, the influence of the axial anomaly can be incorporated by a self-interaction of the 't Hooft determinant type. I will show that despite the threshold problem related to the meson this leads to a significant suppression of the coupling to dynamical quarks which suggests a suppression of the NN vertex as compared to the NN vertex.
