Our ALA Laboratory produce 5-Aminolevulinic Acid Hydrochloride and its derivatives for multiple applications. The 5-ALA is not only for pharmaceutical applications, but also is an key element in agriculture applications, 5-ALA is known to act as an herbicide.
5-Aminolevulinic acid is (also as know 5-ALA, delta-Aminolevulinic acid) is a compound which is widely present in the biosphere and plays an important role in the living body as an intermediate in heme biosynthesis in the body.
Two molecules of ALA are condensed to form porphobilinogen. It is the first step compound in the porphyrin synthesis. Porphyrin is a class of cyclic tetrapyrrolic ring structure compounds joined by four methene bridges (=C-) through alpha-carbon atoms of four pyrroles. Porphyrins are water-soluble biological pigments occuring widely in animal and plant tissues to take part in important biological functions such as metal-binding cofactors in hemoglobins in the blood of animals, chlorophyll in plants for photosynthesis, and certain enzymes for cell respiration. Numerous types of porphyrins can be obtained through the modification of a natural porphyrins and total synthesis. Not only their chemical transformations through nucleophilic and electrophilic substitution, substituent modification, reduction, oxidation but also thier metalation and demetalation properties with iron, zinc, copper, nickel, and cobalt give valuable biological applications in molecular biology, fluoroimmunoassay, catalysts and new pharmaceutical developments.
