heme oxygenase 1

Gene Summary

Predicted to enable several functions, including heme binding activity; heme oxygenase (decyclizing) activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including cellular response to cisplatin; cellular response to metal ion; and regulation of macroautophagy. Located in nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Used to study hemochromatosis and malaria. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); cerebrovascular disease (multiple); factor VIII deficiency; lung disease (multiple); and sickle cell anemia. Orthologous to human HMOX1 (heme oxygenase 1). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
