Accepted name: coproporphyrin ferrochelatase
Reaction: Fe-coproporphyrin III + 2 H+ = coproporphyrin III + Fe2+
Glossary: Fe-coproporphyrin III = coproheme III
Other name(s): hemH (gene name)
Systematic name: protoheme ferro-lyase (protoporphyrin-forming)
Comments: The enzyme, present in Gram-positive bacteria, participates in heme biosynthesis. It can also catalyse the reaction of EC, protoporphyrin IX ferrochelatase, at a much lower level.
