Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Compound: pyridoxal 5'-phosphate

Abbrev Name: PLP

Synonyms: PLP, pyridoxal phosphate, pyridoxal-5P, pyridoxal 5-phosphate, pyridoxal-P, vitamin B6

Superclasses: a vitamin a vitamin B6

Summary from MetaCyc:
Pyridoxal-5'-phosphate (PLP, vitamin B6) is an essential cofactor in all living systems [John95]. It plays an important role in amino acid and carbohydrate metabolism and has recently been implicated in singlet oxygen resistance [Daub00].

Most bacteria, archaebacteria, fungi, and plants synthesize PLP in a single reaction, as described in pyridoxal 5'-phosphate biosynthesis II. Some anaerobic bacteria use a longer, more complex pathway (see pyridoxal 5'-phosphate biosynthesis I).
