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 Resulting in the Formation of Chlorophyll Any Compound of Magnesium Complexed in a Porphyrin (tetrapyrrole) Ring and Which Functions As a Photosynthetic Pigment From Less Complex Precursors.
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 a Biochemical Reaction At Physiological Temperatures. in Biologically Catalyzed Reactions the Reactants Are Known As Substrates and the Catalysts Are Naturally Occurring Macromolecular Substances Known As Enzymes. Enzymes Possess Specific Binding Sites For Substrates and Are Usually Composed Wholly or Largely of Protein But RNA That Has Catalytic Activity (ribozyme) Is Often Also Regarded As Enzymatic.
