Coproporphyrinogen III oxidase, an enzyme involved in heme biosynthesis, catalyzes the oxidative decarboxylation of coproporphyrinogen III to form protoporphyrinogen IX. Genetic and biochemical studies suggested the presence of two different coproporphyrinogen III oxidases, one for aerobic and one for anaerobic conditions. Here we report the cloning of the hemF gene, encoding the aerobic coproporphyrinogen III oxidase from Escherichia coli, by functional complementation of a Saccharomyces… CONTINUE READING
