Vitamin B-6

The primary role of vitamin B6 is to act as a coenzyme to many other enzymes in the body that are involved predominantly in metabolism. This role is performed by the active form, pyridoxal phosphate. This active form is converted from the two other natural forms founds in food: pyridoxal, pyridoxine and pyridoxamine.

Vitamin B6 is involved in the following metabolic processes:

amino acid, glucose and lipid metabolism

neurotransmitter synthesis

histamine synthesis

hemoglobin synthesis and function

gene expression

Amino acid metabolism

Pyridoxal phosphate is involved in almost all amino acid metabolism, from synthesis to breakdown.

Neurotransmitter synthesis

Pyridoxal phosphate-dependent enzymes play a role in the biosynthesis of four important neurotransmitters: serotonin, epinephrine, norepinephrine and gamma-aminobutyric acid. Serine racemase, which synthesizes the neuromodulator D-serine, is also a pyridoxal phosphate-dependent enzyme.

Histamine synthesis

Pyridoxal phosphate is involved in the metabolism of histamine.

Hemoglobin synthesis and function

Pyridoxal phosphate aids in the synthesis of heme and can also bind to two sites on hemoglobin to enhance the oxygen binding of hemoglobin.

Gene expression

It transforms homocysteine into cistation then into cysteine. Pyridoxal phosphate has been implicated in increasing or decreasing the expression of certain genes. Increased intracellular levels of the vitamin will lead to a decrease in the transcription of glucocorticoid hormones. Also, vitamin B6 deficiency will lead to the increased expression of albumin mRNA. Also, pyridoxal phosphate will influence gene expression of glycoprotein IIb by interacting with various transcription factors. The result is inhibition of platelet aggregation.
