Description of 5-Aminolevulinic acid (ALA)

5-Aminolevulinic acid, also known as ALA, Is an endogenous non-proteinogenic amino acid. 5-ALA is a prefix compound of tetrahydropyrrole and is an essential substance for biosynthesis of chlorophyll, heme, and vitamin B12.

5-Aminolevulinic acid is the first compound in the porphyrin synthesis pathway, the pathway that leads to heme in mammals and chlorophyll in plants.

In plants, the production of δ-ALA is the step on which the speed of synthesis of chlorophyll is regulated. Plants that are fed by external δ-ALA accumulate toxic amounts of chlorophyll precursor, protochlorophyllide, indicating that the synthesis of this intermediate is not suppressed anywhere downwards in the chain of reaction. Protochlorophyllide is a strong photosensitizer in plants.
