Part Descriptions

LP28588-9   Pyridoxal
The 4-carboxyaldehyde form of VITAMIN B 6 which is converted to PYRIDOXAL PHOSPHATE which is a coenzyme for synthesis of amino acids, neurotransmitters (serotonin, norepinephrine), sphingolipids, aminolevulinic acid. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006

LP28588-9   Pyridoxal
When mapping be careful to distinguish the word pyridoxal (A is the 2nd to last letter) from pyridoxol (letter O is the 2nd to last letter). These are both forms or preforms of vitamin B6. Pyridoxine - the usual name for B6 is also called pyridoxol. These both get converted to Pyridoxine 5-Phosphate the biologically active form (also called Pyridoxol 5-phosphate)
There are three natural forms of vitamin B6, pyridoxine (also called "pyridoxol") pyridoxamine and pyridoxal. All of these forms are converted into a single biologically active form, pyridoxal 5-phosphate. All three forms of vitamin B6 are heterocyclic organic compounds. Green plants are a natural source of pyridoxal, and its deficiency in humans can lead to serious complications such as epilepsy and seizures. Source: Regenstrief Help
