Pyridoxal phosphate (PLP) is the active form of vitamin B6 and is a cofactor in many reactions of amino acid metabolism. Pyridoxine (PN), pyridoxamine (PM), pyridoxal (PL), pyridoxine 5'-phosphate (PNP) and pyridoxamine 5'-phosphate (PMP) are all forms of vitamin B6 that can be converted to PLP via the PLP salvage pathway. Most unicellular organisms and plants can synthesize PLP, whereas mammals cannot and require vitamin B6 in their diet. Thus far, three PLP biosynthetic pathways have been characterized: the de novo PLP biosynthesis pathway as characterized in Escherichia coli (CITS: [12686115]), the de novo PLP biosynthesis pathway as being studied in fungi (CITS: [15483325],[14764090]), and the PLP salvage pathway (CITS: [15483325], [17696614],[8764513],[9537380]). Saccharomyces cerevisiae synthesize PLP via the fungal type de novo PLP synthesis pathway and the PLP salvage pathway (CITS: [7896706], [17696614], [15483325], [14764090]). Extracellular PN, PL and PM are transported into the cell by Tpn1p, a member of the purine-cytosine permease family (CITS: [12649274]).
