Background
Background
Pyridoxal kinase, a member of the ribokinase superfamily, catalyzes the ATP-dependent phosphorylation reaction of vitamin B6 and is an essential enzyme in the formation of pyridoxal-5'-phosphate, a key cofactor for over 100 enzymes. Pyridoxal kinase is thus regarded as a potential target for pharmacological agents. Structure comparison reveals that the key 12-residue peptide over the active site in HPLK is a beta-strand/loop/beta-strand flap, while the corresponding peptide in sheep brain enzyme adopts a loop conformation. Moreover, HPLK possesses a more hydrophobic ATP-binding pocket.
