The effects of various substituted hydrocarbons on two heme synthesis regulatory enzymes.

Abstract

Benzene and some of its derivatives have been shown to cause alterations in heme and globin synthesis. Structure/activity relationships of the effects of substituted aromatic hydrocarbons on delta-aminolevulinic acid synthetase (ALAS) and ferrochelatase (FC) activities were studied. These enzyme systems were studied because they were regulatory and… (More)
