    The enzyme hydroxymethylbilane synthase (HMBS, E.C. 4.3.1.8) catalyzes the conversion of porphobilinogen into hydroxymethylbilane, a key intermediate for the biosynthesis of heme, chlorophylls, vitamin B12 and related macrocycles. The enzyme is found in all organisms, except viruses. The crystal structure of the selenomethionine-labelled enzyme ([SeMet]HMBS) from Escherichia coli has been solved by the multi-wavelength anomalous dispersion (MAD) experimental method using the Daresbury SRS station 9.5. In addition, [SeMet]HMBS has been studied by MAD at the Grenoble ESRF MAD beamline BM14 (BL19) and this work is described especially with respect to the use of the ESRF CCD detector. The structure at ambient temperature has been refined, the R factor being 16.8% at 2. 4 A resolution. The dipyrromethane cofactor of the enzyme is preserved in its reduced form in the crystal and its geometrical shape is in full agreement with the crystal structures of authentic dipyrromethanes. Proximal to the reactive C atom of the reduced cofactor, spherical density is seen consistent with there being a water molecule ideally placed to take part in the final step of the enzyme reaction cycle. Intriguingly, the loop with residues 47-58 is not ordered in the structure of this form of the enzyme, which carries no substrate. Direct experimental study of the active enzyme is now feasible using time-resolved Laue diffraction and freeze-trapping, building on the structural work described here as the foundation.
