Chemical Information
FooDB NamePorphobilinogen
DescriptionPorphobilinogen, also known as PBG, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as aralkylamines. These are alkylamines in which the alkyl group is substituted at one carbon atom by an aromatic hydrocarbyl group. Porphobilinogen is a very strong basic compound (based on its pKa). Porphobilinogen exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans. porphobilinogen can be biosynthesized from 5-aminolevulinic acid through its interaction with the enzyme Delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase. A dicarboxylic acid that is pyrole bearing aminomethyl, carboxymethyl and 2-carboxyethyl substituents at positions 2, 3 and 4 respectively. In humans, porphobilinogen is involved in the metabolic disorder called congenital erythropoietic porphyria (cep) or gunther disease pathway. Outside of the human body, Porphobilinogen has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as endives, acerola, muscadine grapes, asian pears, and hard wheats. This could make porphobilinogen a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Porphobilinogen is a potentially toxic compound.
