General description

Riboflavin is one of the essential water soluble vitamins. It is made by all plants and many microorganism, but not by higher animals. Riboflavin is the precursor for the active enzyme cofactors riboflavin 5′-monophosphate (also called flavinmononucleotide or FMN) and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD). Flavin nucleotides function as prosthetic groups of oxidation-reduction enzymes known as flavoproteins. These enzymes function in the oxidative degradation of pyruvate, fatty acids, and amino acids. The flavins are reversibly reduced by the action of flavoproteins to form FMNH2 and FADH2.
