Porphyrin Containing Compound Biosynthetic Process
The Chemical Reactions and Pathways Resulting in the Formation of Any Member of a Large Group of Derivatives or Analogs of Porphyrin. Porphyrin Consists of a Ring of Four Pyrrole Nuclei Linked Each to the Next At Their Alpha Positions Through a Methine Group.
The Chemical Reactions and Pathways Leading to the Formation of Tetrapyrroles Natural Pigments Containing Four Pyrrole Rings Joined by One Carbon Units Linking Position 2 of One Pyrrole Ring to Position 5 of the Next.
Catalysis of the Transfer of a Group E.g. a Methyl Group Glycosyl Group Acyl Group Phosphorus Containing or Other Groups From One Compound (generally Regarded As the Donor) to Another Compound (generally Regarded As the Acceptor). Transferase Is the Systematic Name For Any Enzyme of EC Class 2.
