Descriptor in English: Pyridoxal Phosphate
Descriptor in Spanish: Fosfato de Piridoxal
Descriptor in Portuguese: Fosfato de Piridoxal
Descriptor in French: Phosphate de pyridoxal
Entry term(s): Phosphate, Pyridoxal
Pyridoxal 5 Phosphate

Pyridoxal-P
Tree number(s): D03.383.725.676.925.500.500
D08.211.740
Scope note: This is the active form of VITAMIN B 6 serving as a coenzyme for synthesis of amino acids, neurotransmitters (serotonin, norepinephrine), sphingolipids, aminolevulinic acid. During transamination of amino acids, pyridoxal phosphate is transiently converted into pyridoxamine phosphate (PYRIDOXAMINE).
