SYSTEMATIC NAME
IUBMB Comments
Fe3+:ferriprotoporphyrin IX ligase (beta-hematin-forming)
This heme detoxifying enzyme is found in Plasmodium parasites and converts toxic heme to crystalline hemozoin. These organisms lack the mammalian heme oxygenase for elimination of heme.

-
hemozoin consists of an unusual polymer of hemes linked between the central ferric ion of one heme and a carboxylate side-group oxygen of another. The hemes are sequestered via this linkage into an insoluble product, providing a unique way for the malaria parasite to avoid the toxicity associated with soluble heme

COMMENTARY
LITERATURE
additional information
-
the truncated enzyme proteins HDP3 (encoded by amino acids 88-205 of the full-length protein, representing the fasciclin domain) and HDP2 (encoded by amino acids 1–87 and lacking the fasciclin domain) are unable to produce hemozoin. The full-length enzyme is required for heme binding and hemozoin production activities of the protein

COMMENTARY
LITERATURE
medicine
-
HDP is a conserved target for future antimalarial development
medicine
-
involvement of heme detoxification protein in the process of formation of hemozoin suggests that it could be a malaria drug target
