In 1988, scientists studying another cofactor, PQQ, first identified as the prosthetic group of some bacterial dehydrogenases (quinoproteins), and suspected of being involved in other types of carbonyl catalysis, inaugurated their own International Symposia, the first being in Delft, and the second in Yamaguchi (1991). At about this time related quinone prosthetic groups (now known to be TTQ, TPQ and LTQ) were reported and some of these were found in enzymes catalysing reactions similar to those catalysed by some pyridoxal phosphate enzymes.

There were about 150 participants, about half being from Europe, with large numbers from Japan (35) and USA (32), and representatives from China, India, Israel, Russia, Australia and Canada. A total of 90 lectures were presented and about 65 posters.
The 6th International meeting will be held in about two years' time in Japan, and will be organised by Hiriyuki Kagamiyama (Osaka Medical college, Japan).

Abstract

The 3rd International Symposium on Vitamin B6, PQQ, Carbonyl Catalysis and Quinoproteins took place in Southampton, 14th–19th April 2003. The Symposium was in effect a joint Symposium, comprising the 11th International Symposium on Vitamin B6 and Carbonyl Catalysis with the 5th International Symposium on PQQ and Quinoproteins.
Since 1962, when the first international meeting on Vitamin B6 involvement in catalysis took place (in Rome), there have been periodic meetings every 3 or 4 years: Moscow (1966), Nagoya (1967), Leningrad (St. Petersburg) (1974), Toronto (1979), Athens (1983), Turku (1987), Osaka (1990).
In 1988, scientists studying another cofactor, PQQ, first identified as the prosthetic group of some bacterial dehydrogenases (quinoproteins), and suspected of being involved in other types of carbonyl catalysis, inaugurated their own International Symposia, the first being in Delft, and the second in Yamaguchi (1991). At about this time related quinone prosthetic groups (now known to be TTQ, TPQ and LTQ) were reported and some of these were found in enzymes catalysing reactions similar to those catalysed by some pyridoxal phosphate enzymes. In 1994, the Vitamin B6 and the Quinoprotein groups joined forces and held the first joint International Symposium (in Capri), the second being in Santa Fe (1999). This Special Issue reports the proceedings of the 3rd Symposium, held in Southampton (2003).
There were about 150 participants, about half being from Europe, with large numbers from Japan (35) and USA (32), and representatives from China, India, Israel, Russia, Australia and Canada. A total of 90 lectures were presented and about 65 posters.
The 6th International meeting will be held in about two years' time in Japan, and will be organised by Hiriyuki Kagamiyama (Osaka Medical college, Japan).
