MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene is localized to the mitochondrion, where it catalyzes the insertion of the ferrous form of iron into protoporphyrin IX in the heme synthesis pathway. Mutations in this gene are associated with erythropoietic protoporphyria. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. A pseudogene of this gene is found on chromosome 3.[provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for an ENU-induced mutation exhibit hemolytic anemia, photosensitivity, cholestasis, and hepatic dysfunction. Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation die prior to embryonic day 3.5. [provided by MGI curators]
