Human Aminolevulinate, delta-, Synthase 2 (ALAS2) interaction partners

  1. data indicate that the X-linked protoporphyria (show FECH Proteins) variants possess enhanced ALAS activity and ALA dissociation rates, as well as distinct structural properties from those of wild-type hALAS

  2. In this article we add a novel mutation to the previously described 61 different ALAS2 mutations identified in X-linked sideroblastic anaemia patients.

  3. the primary deficiency in ferrochelatase (show FECH Proteins) leads to a secondary increase in ALAS2 expression.

  4. The ALAS2 Y365C mutation impairs pyridoxal 5'-phosphate binding to ALAS2, destabilizing the enzyme. X inactivation was not highly skewed in WBC from affected women. This X-linked dominant mutation perturbs erythropoiesis via cell-nonautonomous effects.

  5. the 130-base pair enhancer region located in the first intron of the ALAS2 gene should be examined in patients with congenital sideroblastic anemia in whom the gene responsible is unknown.

  6. 5 families with X-linked sideroblastic anemia had mutations in a GATA (show QRSL1 Proteins) transcription factor binding site located in a transcriptional enhancer element in intron 1 of the ALAS2 gene.

  7. Loss-of-function FECH (show FECH Proteins) and gain-of-function erythroid-specific ALAS2 mutations causing erythropoietic protoporphyria (show FECH Proteins) and x-linked protoporphyria (show FECH Proteins) in North American patients reveal novel mutations and a high prevalence of X-linked protoporphyria (show FECH Proteins).

  8. ALAS2 gain-of-function mutations increas the specific activity (DeltaAT, DeltaAGTG and p.Q548X) or stability (DeltaG) of the enzyme, thereby leading to the increased erythroid protoporphyrin accumulation causing X-linked protoporphyria (show FECH Proteins).

  9. A large gain-of-function domain within the C-terminus of ALAS2 is associated with X-linked dominant protoporphyria (show FECH Proteins).

  10. Late-onset photosensitivity was caused by ALAS2 mutation in a family with dominant protoporphyria (show FECH Proteins).

Xenopus laevis Aminolevulinate, delta-, Synthase 2 (ALAS2) interaction partners

  1. Xalas2 might be able to synthesize hemoglobin (show HBB Proteins) during hematopoiesis and mediate erythrocyte differentiation by regulating hba3 expression in Xenopus laevis

Mouse (Murine) Aminolevulinate, delta-, Synthase 2 (ALAS2) interaction partners

  1. We propose that the N-terminal truncation offers a cell-specific ALAS2 regulatory mechanism without hindering heme synthesis

  2. Light treatments revealed that ALAS2 expression results in an increase in cell death in comparison to aminolevulinic acid (ALA) treatment producing a similar amount of protoprophyrin IX.

  3. The rate of ALA release is also controlled by a hysteretic kinetic mechanism (observed as a lag (show STMN1 Proteins) in the ALA external aldimine formation progress curve), consistent with conformational changes governing the dissociation of ALA from ALAS.

  4. impaired mitochondrial [Fe-S] cluster biogenesis in Mfrn1(gt/gt (show FABP6 Proteins)) cells results in elevated IRP1 (show ACO1 Proteins) RNA-binding that attenuates ALAS2 mRNA translation and protoporphyrin accumulation

  5. Aberrant iron accumulation and peroxidized state of (ALAS2)-deficient definitive erythroblasts

  6. Gene expression and enzymatic assays indicate that erythroid 5-aminolevulinic acid synthase (Alas2) is decreased in hem6 animals, suggesting a mechanism that could account for the anemia.

ALAS2 Protein Profile

Protein Summary

The product of this gene specifies an erythroid-specific mitochondrially located enzyme. The encoded protein catalyzes the first step in the heme biosynthetic pathway. Defects in this gene cause X-linked pyridoxine-responsive sideroblastic anemia. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.
