Flavin

 

any one of a group of natural organic compounds present in all living cells; a derivative of the heterocyclic compounds of isoalloxazine (C10H6O2N4). Many flavins are important biologically active substances, for example, the vitamin riboflavin. Riboflavin’s derivatives flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) and flavin mononucleotide (FMN) are widely distributed coenzymes, which take part in the oxidation-reduction processes of organisms.

The above-reviewed studies of possible mechanism of the influence of flavines on biological activity of aromatic drugs enable to conclude that for the "Aromatic drug-vitamin" system the most probable mechanisms of the observed synergetic biological effect are the direct interaction between the vitamin and the drug and their competition for the biological receptor DNA or protein.
