The effect of pH and metal ions (Cu2+, Zn2+, Cd2+, Mn2+, Cr3+, Co3+, and Mg2+) on the decyclization reactions of pyridoxal-histamine cyclized Schiff base has been studied using electronic spectroscopy. The study reveals that the cyclization reaction is irreversible with respect to pH and metal ions. Interest in this work derives from the possible involvement of cyclization reactions in the inhibitory activity of a number of pyridoxal-dependent enzymes.
