Summaries for HMOX1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HMOX1 Gene

  • Heme oxygenase, an essential enzyme in heme catabolism, cleaves heme to form biliverdin, which is subsequently converted to bilirubin by biliverdin reductase, and carbon monoxide, a putative neurotransmitter. Heme oxygenase activity is induced by its substrate heme and by various nonheme substances. Heme oxygenase occurs as 2 isozymes, an inducible heme oxygenase-1 and a constitutive heme oxygenase-2. HMOX1 and HMOX2 belong to the heme oxygenase family. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for HMOX1 Gene

HMOX1 (Heme Oxygenase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HMOX1 include heme oxygenase-1 deficiency and pulmonary disease, chronic obstructive. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and oxidoreductase activity. An important paralog of this gene is HMOX2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HMOX1 Gene

  • Heme oxygenase cleaves the heme ring at the alpha methene bridge to form biliverdin. Biliverdin is subsequently converted to bilirubin by biliverdin reductase. Under physiological conditions, the activity of heme oxygenase is highest in the spleen, where senescent erythrocytes are sequestrated and destroyed. Exhibits cytoprotective effects since excess of free heme sensitizes cells to undergo apoptosis.

Tocris Summary for HMOX1 Gene

  • Heme oxygenase (HO) catalyzes the degradation of heme. It is a membrane-bound enzyme that cleaves the heme ring at the alpha-methene bridge to produce bilverdin (which is metabolized further by bilirubin reductase to form bilirubin), iron and carbon monoxide.

Function for HMOX1 Gene

Molecular function for HMOX1 Gene

GENATLAS Biochemistry:
heme oxygenase-1,rate limiting enzyme in the degradation of heme to biliverdin,inducible form,ubiquitously expressed following induction by several stresses,potent anti-inflammatory proteins whenever oxidation injury takes place
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity:
Protoheme + 3 [reduced NADPH--hemoprotein reductase] + 3 O(2) = biliverdin + Fe(2+) + CO + 3 [oxidized NADPH--hemoprotein reductase] + 3 H(2)O.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function:
Heme oxygenase cleaves the heme ring at the alpha methene bridge to form biliverdin. Biliverdin is subsequently converted to bilirubin by biliverdin reductase. Under physiological conditions, the activity of heme oxygenase is highest in the spleen, where senescent erythrocytes are sequestrated and destroyed. Exhibits cytoprotective effects since excess of free heme sensitizes cells to undergo apoptosis.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Induction:
Heme oxygenase 1 activity is highly inducible by its substrate heme and by various non-heme substances such as heavy metals, bromobenzene, endotoxin, oxidizing agents and UVA.
