SummaryThe structural gene for human δ-aminolevulinate dehydratase (ALA-D) has been localized to chromosomal region 9q34 by in situ hybridization using a [125I]-labeled human δ-aminolevulinate dehydratase cDNA. Of the 150 silver grains analyzed, 25% were localized to chromosome 9q, while 12% and 8% were on chromosomes 1p and 13q, respectively. The single chromosomal region q34 had over 90% of the total grains observed on chromosome 9. In contrast, the grains on chromosomes 1p and 13q were… Expand

Figures from this paper

Regional assignment of the human uroporphyrinogen III synthase (UROS) gene to chromosome 10q25.2→q26.3
TLDR
Using human-rodent hybrids containing different portions of human chromosome 10, the UROS gene was assigned to the region 10q25.2→ q26.3 by Southern hybridization analysis of DNA from somatic cell hybrids with the full-length UROS cDNA. Expand
Erythrocyte delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase genotype and other mechanisms affecting workers' susceptibility to lead.
TLDR
The depletion in erythrocyte ALAD activity was not found to be caused by the ALAD allele, and the entire ALAD gene analysis failed to indicate other variants, except for the Rsa I site. Expand
Lack of association of δ-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase genotype with cytogenetic damage in lead workers
TLDR
A significant association existed between both SCE and HFC levels and lead exposure, however, different ALAD genotypes were not found to be associated with levels of blood lead and ZPP in the three groups. Expand
A molecular genetic linkage map of mouse chromosome 4 including the localization of several proto-oncogenes.
TLDR
A comparison of the mapping data with inbred strain mapping data did not show any evidence for inversions or deletions on chromosome 4, and new regions of synteny were defined between mouse chromosome 4 and human chromosomes 1 and 8. Expand
Structural studies of substrate and product complexes of 5-aminolaevulinic acid dehydratase from humans, Escherichia coli and the hyperthermophile Pyrobaculum calidifontis.
TLDR
A number of X-ray analyses of an enzyme involved in a key early stage of tetrapyrrole biosynthesis are reported, showing that the enzyme adopts an octameric quaternary structure in accord with previously published analyses of the enzyme from a range of other species. Expand
Delta-aminolevulinate dehydratase polymorphism and blood lead levels in Chinese children.
TLDR
Results indicate that individuals carrying the ALAD2 allele are more likely to have sustained increases in blood lead levels when exposed to a lead-contaminated environment. Expand
Polymorphism of Delta-Aminolevulinic Acid Dehydratase and Its Effect on Blood Lead Levels in Thai Workers
TLDR
The frequency of ALAD2 in Thai workers was low; the authors found that ALAD polymorphism had a small or only modest effect on BLLs. Expand
5-Aminolevulinate dehydratase porphyria: Update on hepatic 5-aminolevulinic acid synthase induction and long-term response to hemin.
TLDR
Elevation in circulating hepatic ALAS1 and response to treatment with hemin indicate that the liver is an important source of excess ALA in ADP, although the marrow may also contribute. Expand
Erythrocyte aminolevulinic acid dehydratase inhibition by cis-platin.
TLDR
The results show that erythrocyte ALAD is sensitive to cis-platin and suggest that the mechanism of enzyme inhibition is a direct interaction with sulfhydryl groups, whereas zinc site appears involved with the higher doses only. Expand
Biosynthesis of heme in mammals.
TLDR
The biochemistry, structural biology and the mechanisms of tissue-specific regulation are presented in this review along with the key features of the porphyric disorders. Expand

δ-Aminolevulinate dehydratase: Induced expression and regional assignment of the human gene to chromosome 9q13»qter
TLDR
Examination of secondary, tertiary, and quaternary XX-8 subclones revealed that the expression of the human isozyme segregated with human chromosome 9q, confirming the provisional regional assignment made by classical linkage studies. Expand
Assignment of the human gene for δ aminolevulinate dehydrase to chromosome 9 by somatic cell hybridization and specific enzyme immunoassay
TLDR
A non‐competitive enzyme immunoassay specific for δ aminolevulinate dehydrase has been devised and applied to rodent–human hybrid cell lines and the gene for ALA dehydrase is assigned to chromosome 9. Expand
Regional gene assignment of human porphobilinogen deaminase and esterase A4 to chromosome 11q23 leads to 11qter.
TLDR
Results confirm the location of the gene for human PBGD on chromosome 11 and establish the assignment of the loci for PBGD and ESA4 in the region 11q23 leads to 11qter. Expand
Human delta-aminolevulinate dehydratase: nucleotide sequence of a full-length cDNA clone.
TLDR
Two cDNAs encoding human delta-aminolevulinate dehydratase (ALA-D) were identified, recloned into bacteriophage M13, and sequenced by primer extension, finding a cysteine- and histidine-rich binding site for zinc and an unusual region of charge complementarity surrounding the active lysine residue in the catalytic site. Expand
Inherited deficiency of delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase.
TLDR
Intial experiments support the hypothesis that the mutation in this family with an inherited deficiency of red cell ALA-D activity occurring over three generations may affect a regulatory gene, but enzyme purification and further study are required. Expand
Molecular cloning of a cDNA for human δ-aminolevulinate dehydratase
TLDR
A cDNA encoding human delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (ALA-D; EC 4.2.1.24), the second enzyme in the heme biosynthetic pathway, was isolated from a human liver cDNA expression library and the aa sequence predicted from the partial nucleotide sequence was found to be essentially colinear with the sequences of four bovine ALA- D peptides, totaling 35 non-overlapping aa residues.

Linkage analyses using biochemical variants in mice. II. Levulinate dehydratase and autosomal glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase
TLDR
The level of hepatic δ-aminolevulinate dehydratase varies among inbred strains of mice and is regulated by codominant alleles at the Lv locus, which is 5±2 recombination units from brown, b, in linkage group VIII. Expand

TLDR
Findings not only confirm the assignment of the AK-1 locus to chromosome 9 made previously in somatic cell hybrids, but suggest a more precise assignment to region 9q33→qter. Expand
