General annotation (Comments)

Function

Catalyzes an early step in the biosynthesis of tetrapyrroles. Binds two molecules of 5-aminolevulinate per subunit, each at a distinct site, and catalyzes their condensation to form porphobilinogen By similarity.

Catalytic activity

2 5-aminolevulinate = porphobilinogen + 2 H2O.

Cofactor

Binds 1 zinc ion per monomer By similarity.

Pathway

Porphyrin-containing compound metabolism; protoporphyrin-IX biosynthesis; coproporphyrinogen-III from 5-aminolevulinate: step 1/4.

Subunit structure

Homooctamer By similarity.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the ALADH family.
