  • Official Full Name
  • ferrochelatase
  • Background
  • The protein encoded by this gene is localized to the mitochondrion, where it catalyzes the insertion of the ferrous;form of iron into protoporphyrin IX in the heme synthesis pathway. Mutations in this gene are associated with;erythropoietic protoporphyria. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. A;pseudogene of this gene is found on chromosome 3.
  • Synonyms
  • FECH; ferrochelatase; ferrochelatase (protoporphyria); ferrochelatase, mitochondrial; protoporphyria; EPP; FCE; Ferrochelatase mitochondrial; Heme synthetase; Protoheme ferro lyase; heme synthase; protoheme ferro-lyase
