Comments [?]

case <OC:Firmicutes> or <OC:Actinobacteria>
Function Involved in coproporphyrin-dependent heme b biosynthesis. Catalyzes the insertion of ferrous iron into coproporphyrin III to form Fe-coproporphyrin III.
Catalytic activity RHEA:49572: Fe-coproporphyrin III + 2 H(+) = coproporphyrin III + Fe(2+)
EC 4.99.1.9
PhysiologicalDirection=right-to-left (RHEA:49574)
Pathway Porphyrin-containing compound metabolism; protoheme biosynthesis.
else
Function Catalyzes the ferrous insertion into protoporphyrin IX.
Catalytic activity RHEA:22584: 2 H(+) + heme b = Fe(2+) + protoporphyrin IX
EC 4.99.1.1
Pathway Porphyrin-containing compound metabolism; protoheme biosynthesis; protoheme from protoporphyrin-IX: step 1/1.
end case
case <OC:Escherichia> or <OC:Shigella> or <OC:Salmonella>
Subunit Monomer.
end case
Subcellular location Cytoplasm.
Similarity Belongs to the ferrochelatase family.
