    • PLP is an important cofactor in:

    1) fatty acid metabolism, including the production of important omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids

    2) carbohydrate metabolism, including the breakdown of glycogen into glucose

    3) amino acid metabolism, including neurotransmitter synthesis and the conversion of tryptophan into niacin

    • Vitamin B6 deficiency decreases niacin production and increases formation of the metabolite xanthurenic acid, which lowers insulin activity
    • Low levels of vitamin B6 also lead to increased synovial fluid between joints, which results in nerve compression
