Thiamine‐dependent regulation of mammalian brain pyridoxal kinase in vitro and in vivo

Diurnal effects of thiamine administration on the metabolically linked ThDP‐ and PLP‐dependent enzymes may support the brain homeostatic mechanisms and physiological fitness.

Preventing Vitamin B6–Related Neurotoxicity

Since B6 metabolites have a long half-life, weekly administration is preferred over daily use to prevent toxicity and PLP-based supplements are preferred over pyridoxine supplements because of minimal neurotoxicity observed in neuronal cell viability tests.

Synthesis and characterization of novel acyl hydrazones derived from vanillin as potential aldose reductase inhibitors.

A series of acyl hydrazones obtained from the reaction of vanillin derivatized with acyl groups and phenolic Mannich bases with hydrazides containing pharmacological groups such as morpholine, piperazine, and tetrahydroisoquinoline were investigated as an inhibitor of the AR enzyme.

Vitamin B-6-Induced Neuropathy: Exploring the Mechanisms of Pyridoxine Toxicity

It is concluded that PDXK inhibition and consequently disrupted GABA neurotransmission is the most plausible mechanism of toxicity.

B vitamin supply in plants and humans: the importance of vitamer homeostasis

It is concluded that research should focus on the significance of vitamer homeostasis – at the organ, tissue and subcellular levels – which could improve the health of not only humans but also plants, benefiting from cross‐disciplinary approaches and novel technologies.

BBA - Molecular Basis Disease Pyridox(am)ine 5 ′ -phosphate oxidase (PNPO) de fi ciency in zebra fi sh results in fatal seizures and metabolic aberrations

Data indicate that not only decreased PLP but also accumulation of PMP may play a role in the clinical phenotype of PNPO, suggesting impaired activity of PLP-dependent transaminases involved in their degradation.

Two independent routes of de novo vitamin B6 biosynthesis: not that different after all.

Surprisingly, this comparison reveals that the key biosynthetic enzymes of both pathways are, in fact, very similar both structurally and mechanistically.

Identification and characterization of a pyridoxal reductase involved in the vitamin B6 salvage pathway in Arabidopsis

This work reports the first report of a pyridoxal reductase in the vitamin B6 salvage pathway in plants, identified in Arabidopsis based on sequence homology with the protein in yeast.

Measurement of plasma B6 vitamer profiles in children with inborn errors of vitamin B6 metabolism using an LC-MS/MS method

It is shown that patients with inborn errors of B6 metabolism such as pyridox(am)ine 5’-phosphate oxidase (PNPO) deficiency have characteristic B6 profiles which allow them to be differentiated from each other and control populations, even when on treatment with B6.

Human Pyridoxal Phosphatase

Catalytically active human PLP phosphatase was expressed in Escherichia coli, and characteristics of the recombinant enzyme were similar to those of erythrocyte enzyme.

Disruption of the plr1+ gene encoding pyridoxal reductase of Schizosaccharomyces pombe.

The results showed that PL reductase encoded by the plr1(+ )gene is involved in the excretion of PL after reducing it to PN, and may not participate in the salvage pathway for PLP synthesis.

The value of plasma vitamin B6 profiles in early onset epileptic encephalopathies

PM concentrations and the PM/PA ratio clearly separated PNPO-deficient patients from the other cohorts, and represents a robust biomarker for the selective screening of PN PO deficiency.

Physical and kinetic properties of a pyridoxal reductase purified from bakers' yeast.

Consideration of substrate specificity and other properties of the enzyme distinguish it clearly from other alcohol dehydrogenases or aldehyde reductases, which strongly indicate that the dehydrogenase functions in vivo to reduce pyridoxal to pyrsidoxine, which is the preferred substrate for pyrIDoxal (pyrid Oxine) kinase in yeast.

Direct and Functional Biomarkers of Vitamin B6 Status.

Vitamin B6 status is best assessed by using a combination of biomarkers because of the influence of potential confounders, such as inflammation, alkaline phosphatase activity, low serum albumin, renal function, and inorganic phosphate.
