Vitamin B6 deficiency not only decreased alanine-glyoxylate aminotransferase activity, but also down-regulated alanine-glyoxylate aminotransferase gene expression by hepatocytes and led to hyperoxaluria and hyperglycolic aciduria secondary to impaired metabolism of oxalate precursors. Hyperoxaluria with hypocitruria may also contribute to calcium oxalate stone formation in vitamin B6 deficiency.
