Amsterdam: North-Holland Publishing Co. 1975, pp. Sassa and A. Kappas* A. Introduction The biosynthesis of heme is regulated by the activity of the first enzyme of its biosynthetic pathway, o-aminolevulinic acid synthase (ALA-S) (4). This enzyme is present in the mitochondria and is inducible in the liver by a variety of compounds of hydrophobic nature.

If in such cases fecal porphyrin excretion is increased, one obtains the first complete overlapping between AlP and PV (Table 3, footnote a). A second complete overlapping is given by normal uro-S activity and normal fecal porphyrin excretion in both cases (Table 3, footnote b). These constellations of results are limited in time. During the course (progression and remission) of the disease - with exception of uro-S activity - these parameters may vary considerably in the same patient. The following are some representative cases: 33 Table 4.
