Vanadate in the presence of pyridoxal phosphate promotes the decarboxylation of S-adenosylmethionine. Pyridoxal has a lower effect; pyridoxine none. The rate of decarboxylation depends on pyridoxal phosphate and vanadate concentration. Vanadate as low as 10(-7) M gives significant decarboxylation. The reaction seems to occur through the formation of a Schiff base. The spectral shift elicited by S-adenosylmethionine on pyridoxal phosphate due to the presence of the sulfonium function is influenced by vanadate. Orthovanadate is a little less effective then metavanadate; vanadyl sulfate is even less efficient, and the effect of Cu2+ at the same concentration is still lower. Bleomycin partially prevents the vanadium effect. In vivo, vanadate promotes a marked increase in chicken liver S-adenosylmethionine and S-adenosylhomocysteine concentration, whereas the polyamine concentration is unaffected.

Abstract

Vanadate in the presence of pyridoxal phosphate promotes the decarboxylation of S-adenosylmethionine. Pyridoxal has a lower effect; pyridoxine none. The rate of decarboxylation depends on pyridoxal phosphate and vanadate concentration. Vanadate as low as 10(-7) M gives significant decarboxylation. The reaction seems to occur through the formation of a Schiff base. The spectral shift elicited by S-adenosylmethionine on pyridoxal phosphate due to the presence of the sulfonium function is influenced by vanadate. Orthovanadate is a little less effective then metavanadate; vanadyl sulfate is even less efficient, and the effect of Cu2+ at the same concentration is still lower. Bleomycin partially prevents the vanadium effect. In vivo, vanadate promotes a marked increase in chicken liver S-adenosylmethionine and S-adenosylhomocysteine concentration, whereas the polyamine concentration is unaffected.
