DESCRIPTION
Also known as HDOX2_STAAR, isdI. Allows bacterial pathogens to use the host heme as an iron source. Catalyzes the oxidative degradation of the heme macrocyclic porphyrin ring to the oxo-bilirubin chromophore staphylobilin (a mixture of the linear tetrapyrroles 5-oxo-delta-bilirubin and 15-oxo-beta-bilirubin) in the presence of a suitable electron donor such as ascorbate or NADPH--cytochrome P450 reductase, with subsequent release of free iron. Homodimer.
