Aging and vitamin B-6 depletion: effects on plasma pyridoxal-5'-phosphate and erythrocyte aspartate aminotransferase activity coefficients in rats

, : Aging and vitamin B-6 depletion: effects on plasma pyridoxal-5'-phosphate and erythrocyte aspartate aminotransferase activity coefficients in rats. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 51(3): 446-452

Plasma pyridoxal-5'-phosphate (PLP) and erythrocyte aspartate aminotransferase activity coefficients were longitudinally determined in rats. Blood was obtained at weeks 0, 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, and 11 from rats initially aged 3 wk, 3 mo, 12 mo, and 23 mo (weeks 0, 1, 4, 6, and 9 only). The diet groups were ad libitum control (ALC), deficient (DEF), and pair-fed control (PF). Plasma PLP concentrations of controls were highest at 3 mo, intermediate at 3 wk and 12 mo, and lowest at 23 mo. When an additional group of 22-mo-old rats was fed a high-vitamin B-6 diet for 4 wk, their low baseline plasma PLP concentrations did not increase significantly. Plasma PLP decreased significantly within 1 wk and activity coefficients increased significantly by week 4 in all DEF rats. Depletion was most rapid and severe in the youngest DEF rats and least in 12-mo-old DEF rats. Mechanisms for the low plasma PLP control values and resistance to depletion in aged rats remain to be determined.
