IUBMB Comments
The enzyme, found in many archaea, bacteria, and eukaryotes, produces heme o, which in many cases is further modified into heme a. In organisms that produce heme a, the enzyme forms a complex with heme a synthase. In some archaeal species the enzyme transfers a geranylgeranyl group instead of a farnesyl group.
