The biosynthesis of the heme portion of hemoglobin by animal tissues has been studied extensively (1). In contrast, relatively little is known about the enzymes participating in the initial steps of the pathway for heme catabolism. Thus, the reaction in which heme and globin are separated remains essentially obscure, although it is known that heme undergoes ring cleavage with liberation of carbon monoxide (2, 3) and an unidentified product. The latter is converted to biliverdin (3) which in… CONTINUE READING
