Aminolevulinate dehydratase

Porphobilinogen Synthase, delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase, ALAD
The ALAD enzyme is composed of 8 identical subunits and catalyzes the condensation of 2 molecules of delta-aminolevulinate to form porphobilinogen (a precursor of heme, cytochromes and other hemoproteins). ALAD catalyzes the second step in the porphyrin and heme biosynthetic pathway; zinc is essential for enzymatic activity. ALAD enzymatic activity is inhibited by lead and a defect in the ALAD structural gene can cause increased sensitivity to lead poisoning and acute hepatic porphyria.

UNASSIGNED: Lead inhibits the delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (ALAD) activity and results in neurotoxic aminolevulinic acid accumulation in the blood.
Association between δ-aminolevulinate dehydratase G177C polymorphism and blood lead levels in brain tumor patients.
Abd Elazem et al., Az Zaqāzīq, Egypt. In Mol Clin Oncol, Sep 2015
UNASSIGNED: As the δ-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (ALAD) G177C polymorphism affects the toxicokinetics of lead in the body, and the corresponding exposure to lead may increase the risk of adult brain tumors, we hypothesize that there is a possible association of the ALAD G177C genotype and the risk of brain tumors in human.
[Study on relationships between biomarkers in workers with low-level occupational lead exposure].
Zhou et al., In Zhonghua Lao Dong Wei Sheng Zhi Ye Bing Za Zhi, Jun 2015
The blood samples of 233 workers with occupational lead exposure and 76 non-occupational lead exposure were collected to measure the blood lead (Pb-B) level using graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry (GFAAS), the zinc Protoporphyrin (ZPP) level with blood fluorescence assay, and the delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (ALAD) concentration by a spectrophotometer, and to determine the gene polymorphism of ALAD with TaqMan real-time polymerase chain reaction.

Ventura et al., Reggio nell'Emilia, Italy. In Postgrad Med, 2014
In the acute porphyrias (acute intermittent porphyria, hereditary coproporphyria, variegate porphyria, and the very rare delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase ALAD-d porphyria), the characteristic severe neurovisceral involvement is mainly ascribed to a tissue accumulation of delta-aminolevulinic acid, a neurotoxic nonporphyrin precursor.
