Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) is a water-soluble vitamin important as a precursor for the flavin coenzymes, including flavin mononucleotide (FMN) and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD).

These flavins serve as cofactors in a number of redox reactions. One of the major enzymes requiring flavins (FAD+) as a cofactor is succinate dehydrogenase, which plays major roles in the Citric Acid Cycle and electron transport chain.

In patients with riboflavin deficiency, cheilosis and corneal vascularization are characteristic findings.
