General annotation (Comments)

Function

Catalyzes cyclization of the linear tetrapyrrole, hydroxymethylbilane, to the macrocyclic uroporphyrinogen III, the branch point for the various sub-pathways leading to the wide diversity of porphyrins. Porphyrins act as cofactors for a multitude of enzymes that perform a variety of processes within the cell such as methionine synthesis (vitamin B12) or oxygen transport (heme) By similarity.

Catalytic activity

Hydroxymethylbilane = uroporphyrinogen III + H2O.

Pathway

Porphyrin-containing compound metabolism; protoporphyrin-IX biosynthesis; coproporphyrinogen-III from 5-aminolevulinate: step 3/4.

Subunit structure

Monomer By similarity.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the uroporphyrinogen-III synthase family.
