Gene: Fech (ferrochelatase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Fech
Name: ferrochelatase
RGD ID: 1307556
Description: Enables ferrochelatase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to dexamethasone stimulus; response to lead ion; and response to platinum ion. Predicted to be located in mitochondrial inner membrane. Predicted to be active in mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cutaneous porphyria and erythropoietic protoporphyria. Orthologous to human FECH (ferrochelatase); PARTICIPATES IN acute intermittent porphyria pathway; erythropoietic porphyria pathway; heme biosynthetic pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
