  • Biosynthesis of porphobilinogen. ALA synthase occurs in the mitochondria,whereas ALA dehydratase is present in the cytosol.The substrates are succinyl-CoA and glycineThe product is delta-aminolevulinic acid (ALA).An essential cofactor is pyridoxal phosphate (vit B-6).This is the rate-limiting reaction of heme synthesis in alltissues, and it is therefore tightly regulated.
  • The substrates are two molecules of ALA.The product is porphobilinogen, the first pyrrole.ALA dehydratase is a -SH containing enzyme.• It is very susceptible to inhibition by lead.
  • Conversion of porphobilinogen to uroporphyrinogens.Uroporphyrinogen synthase I is alsocalled porphobilinogen (PBG) deaminase or hydroxymethylbilane(HMB) synthase.
  • Decarboxylates the acetic acid groups, converting them tomethyl groups.
  • Catalyzes the conversion of two propionic acid groups to vinylGroupsProtoporphyrinogen IX oxidase converts the methylenebridges between the pyrrole rings to methenyl bridges.Ferrochelatase adds Fe++ to protoporphyrin IX, formingheme.• The enzyme requires Fe++, ascorbic acid and cysteine(reducing agents).• Ferrochelatase is inhibited by lead.
  • Barbiturates
