Heme biosynthesis-associated TPR protein (IPR005254)

Short name: Heme_biosyn_assoc_TPR_pro

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



This is a family of uncharacterised tetratricopeptide repeat (TPR) proteins invariably found in heme biosynthesis gene clusters. The absence of any invariant residues other than Ala argues against this protein serving as an enzyme per se. The gene symbol hemY assigned in E. coli is unfortunate in that an unrelated protein, protoporphyrinogen oxidase (HemG in E. coli) is designated HemY in Bacillus subtilis.
