In photosynthetic organisms chlorophyll and heme biosynthesis is tightly regulated at various levels in response to environmental adaptation and plant development. The formation of 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) is the key regulatory step and provides adequate amounts of the common precursor molecule for the Mg and Fe branches of tetrapyrrole biosynthesis. Pathway control prevents accumulation of metabolic intermediates and avoids photo-oxidative damage. In angiosperms reduction of… CONTINUE READING
