Ferrochelatase Proteins (FECH)

The protein encoded by FECH is localized to the mitochondrion, where it catalyzes the insertion of the ferrous form of iron into protoporphyrin IX in the heme synthesis pathway. Additionally we are shipping FECH Antibodies (50) and FECH Kits (13) and many more products for this protein.

Synechocystis PCC 6803 Ferrochelatase (FECH) interaction partners

  1. The plastidic type II ferrochelatase contains a C-terminal chlorophyll a/b (CAB (show NPDC1 Proteins)) motif, a conserved hydrophobic stretch homologous to the CAB (show NPDC1 Proteins) domain of plant light- harvesting proteins.

  2. The apparent surplus of FeCH activity in the wild type is critical for cell viability under high light due to a regulatory role of FeCH in the distribution of Chl (show CHRDL1 Proteins) into apoproteins.

  3. Analysis of the recombinant full-length and truncated ferrochelatase (FeCH) demonstrated that the C-terminal extension is critical for activity of the FeCH and that it is strictly required for oligomerization of this enzyme.

Human Ferrochelatase (FECH) interaction partners

  1. These findings suggest that homozygous polymorphism of the FECH gene is associated with a slight elevation of the protoporphyrin level in erythrocytes, resulting in a mild EPP phenotype

  2. a novel mutation, c.84G >A, in the FECH gene in four individuals with Erythropoietic Protoporphyria, is reported.

  3. High ferrochelatase expression is associated with growth of malarial parasites in erythropoietic protoporphyria patients.

  4. of ASO-V1 into developing human erythroblasts from an overtly EPP subject markedly increased the production of WT FECH mRNA and reduced the accumulation of PPIX to a level similar to that measured in asymptomatic EPP subjects

  5. Sequence analysis of the FECH gene identified a novel missense mutation in exon 4 (c.418>A, G140R) of the FECH gene, as well as the common FECH IVS3-48 polymorphism in erythropoietic protoporphyria.

  6. Loss-of-function FECH and gain-of-function erythroid-specific ALAS2 (show ALAS2 Proteins) mutations causing erythropoietic protoporphyria and x-linked protoporphyria in North American patients reveal novel mutations and a high prevalence of X-linked protoporphyria.

  7. The mutation analysis in the FECH gene identified different genotypes with the t/t genotype, 7 with the t/M genotype, 14 with the c/t genotype and 10 with c/M genotype from different EPP families.

  8. Sequencing of the ferrochelatase gene did not show a mutation in any of the patients studied. Furthermore, the hypomorphic allele IVS3-48C was absent in all individuals.

  9. Molecular dynamic simulations provided insight into the conformational movements and function of the active site residues of human ferrochelatase.

Mouse (Murine) Ferrochelatase (FECH) interaction partners

  1. 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine activates iron uptake and heme biosynthesis by increasing c-Myc (show MYC Proteins) nuclear localization and binding to the E-boxes of transferrin receptor 1 (show TFR Proteins) (TfR1 (show TFRC Proteins)) and ferrochelatase (Fech) genes.

  2. analysis of the inhibitory metal ion-binding site in ferrochelatase

  3. Fech forms an oligomeric complex with Mfrn1 and Abcb10 (show ABCB10 Proteins) to synergistically integrate mitochondrial iron importation and use for heme biosynthesis.

  4. Ferrochelatase activity and protein levels were dramatically decreased in Irp2 (show IREB2 Proteins)(-/-) spleens, whereas ferrochelatase mRNA levels were increased, demonstrating posttranscriptional regulation of ferrochelatase in vivo

  5. analysis of skin ferrochelatase and photosensitivity in mice and man

  6. exon 10-deleted ferrochelatase heterozygous mice exhibited skin photosensitivity but no liver disease

  7. analysis of the active site loop motif of murine ferrochelatase

  8. hydrogen bonding between ferrochelatase and mesoporphyrin is a key factor in the thermodynamics of the binding reaction

  9. Protoporphyric (Fech(m1pas)/Fech(m1pas) mice (C57BL/6J) showed a higher degree of liver pathology and more protoporphyrin accumulation than corresponding SJL/J and BALB/cJ mice. In the latter mice, mitochondrial respiratory chain activity was increased.

  10. The kinetic mechanisms of inhibition of two variants of ferrochelatase by N-methylprotoporphyrin are reported.

FECH Protein Profile

Protein Summary

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.
