Pyridoxal kinase (PDXK) converts vitamin B6 to pyridoxal-5-phosphate (PLP), an essential cofactor in the intermediate metabolism of amino acids and neurotransmitters. The PDXK gene encodes a 312-amino acid polypeptide, and expression of the cDNA reveals pyridoxal kinase activity. Northern blot analysis revealed that a major 1.5-kb PDXK transcript is expressed in all tissues tested. The expression of PDXK shows circadian oscillations. The expression of Pdxk in mouse liver and brain is regulated by the 3 PAR bZIP transcription factors, Dbp, Hlf, and Tef, which also show circadian oscillations in expression. Mice devoid of all 3 transcription factors show decreased levels of brain PLP, serotonin, and dopamine, and are highly susceptible to frequently lethal generalized spontaneous and audiogenic epilepsies.
