Deconstructing heme.

Abstract

Heme degradation plays important biological roles, ranging from generating light-absorbing compounds in plants to facilitating iron homeostasis in mammals. The X-ray crystal structure of human heme oxygenase-1, which instigates the degradation process, reveals insights into the enzymatic mechanism of this important process.
