Uroporphyrinogen III synthase

uroporphyrinogen III synthase, UROS, UROIIIS, uroporphyrinogen III cosynthetase
The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the fourth step of porphyrin biosynthesis in the heme biosynthetic pathway. Defects in this gene cause congenital erythropoietic porphyria (Gunther's disease). [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)
Top mentioned proteins: ACID, HAD, CAN, STEP, ferrochelatase
