Pathways & interactions
Heme A synthase, type 1 (IPR023755)
Short name: HemeA_Synthase_type1
Overlapping homologous superfamilies
- COX15/CtaA family (IPR003780)
- Heme A synthase, type 1 (IPR023755)
Heme A synthase catalyzes the oxidation of the C8 methyl side group on heme O porphyrin ring into a formyl group [PMID: 15491161].
The type 1 subfamily of this enzyme is found in Gram-positive bacteria. Bacillus subtilis CatA is involved in sporulation [PMID: 12206660].
