Purification of Porphobilinogen Deaminase and the Sequencing and Expression of thehemC Gene of Rhodobacter Capsulatus.
Rhodobacter capsulatus uses the common tetrapyrrole pathway to synthesize heme, bacteriochlorophyll, siroheme and vitamin B-12. As part of our studies on the regulation of this pathway, the productExpand
Biosynthesis of Vitamin B12: Biosynthetic and Synthetic Researches
The problem posed by the biosynthesis of vitamin B12 is one of the most formidable and challenging in the whole area of biosynthetic research. What I hope to illustrate is how such a problem can beExpand
Biosynthesis of porphyrins and corrins. 1. 1H and 13C NMR spectra of (hydroxymethyl)bilane and uroporphyrinogens I and III.
High-field NMR spectroscopic methods have been applied to study the reactions catalyzed by porphobilinogen (PBG) deaminase and uroporphyrinogen III (uro'gen III) cosynthase, which are the enzymesExpand
Biosynthesis of porphyrins and corrins. 2. Isolation, purification, and NMR investigations of the porphobilinogen-deaminase covalent complex.
During the resultant formation of [3H]uro'gen I, a transient low-intensity signal was detected that has been tentatively assigned to the highly reactive azafulvene species, proposed in several mechanistic schemes for porphyrin biosynthesis. Expand
Biosynthesis of uroporphyrinogens. Interaction among 2-(aminomethyl)bilanes and the enzymatic system.
An outline of the most likely pathway of uroporphyrinogen III biosynthesis from porphobilinogen is given and results obtained with 2-aminomethyldipyrrylmethanes are obtained. Expand
Biosynthesis of the pigments of life: formation of the macrocycle
The organic nuclei of chlorophylls, haems, cytochromes and vitamin B12 are biosynthesised from a single tetrapyrrolic intermediate which has an unexpected, rearranged structure. The mechanism ofExpand
Chemical and enzymic studies on biosynthesis of the natural porphyrin macrocycle: Formation and role of unrearranged hydroxymethylbilane and order of assembly of the pyrrole rings
Abstract Following a review of the background to current research, it is shown that the action of deaminase alone on porphobilinogen leads to release into the medium of the unrearrangedExpand
