Uroporphyrinogen III decarboxylase

Uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase, also known as UROD, is a human gene.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: UROD uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase| url = http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez?Db=gene&Cmd=ShowDetailView&TermToSearch=7389| accessdate = ]

Uroporphyrinogen III decarboxylase (UroD) is a homodimeric enzyme (EC number|4.1.1.37, PDB|1URO) which catalyzes the fifth step in heme biosynthesis: the elimination of carboxyl groups from the four acetate side chains of uroporphyrinogen III to yield coproporphyrinogen III.

At low substrate concentrations the reaction is believed to follow an ordered route, with the sequential removal of CO2 from the D, A, B, and C rings, whereas at higher substrate/enzyme levels a random route seems to be operative. The enzyme functions as a dimer in solution, and both the enzymes from human and tobacco have been crystallized and solved at good resolutions.

UroD is regarded as an unusual decarboxylase, since it performs decarboxylations without the intervention of any cofactors, unlike the vast majority of decarboxylases. Its mechanism has recently been proposed to proceed through substrate protonation by an arginine residue.

Silva & Ramos (2005) performed a detailed study of competing reaction mechanisms proposed for uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase. [Silva PJ, Ramos MJ.

PBB_Summary
section_title =
summary_text = This gene encodes the fifth enzyme of the heme biosynthetic pathway. This enzyme is responsible for catalyzing the conversion of uroporphyrinogen to coproporphyrinogen through the removal of four carboxymethyl side chains. Mutations and deficiency in this enzyme are known to cause familial porphyria cutanea tarda and hepatoerythropoetic porphyria.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: UROD uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase| url = http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez?Db=gene&Cmd=ShowDetailView&TermToSearch=7389| accessdate = ]
