Incorporation of Fe2+ into the structure of protoporphyrin IX is catalyzed by
[C] Haem oxidase
- Fe2+ is incorporated in protoporphyrin IX with the help of the enzyme “ferrochelatase”
- The final reaction of Heme synthesis is the incorporation of Fe2+ into the structure of protoporphyrin IX.
- The process is catalyzed by ferrochelatase
- Reaction takes place on the inner mitochondrial membrane
