Annotation score:3 out of 5

<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome. This score <strong>cannot</strong> be used as a measure of the accuracy of the annotation as we cannot define the 'correct annotation' for any given protein.<p><a href='/help/annotation_score' target='_top'>More...</a></p>

This protein is involved in step 4 of the subpathway that synthesizes coproporphyrinogen-III from 5-aminolevulinate.
Proteins known to be involved in the 4 steps of the subpathway in this organism are:
  1. Delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (ALAD), Delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (ALAD), Delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (ALAD)
  2. Hydroxymethylbilane synthase, Hydroxymethylbilane synthase (HMBS), Hydroxymethylbilane synthase (HMBS), Hydroxymethylbilane synthase (HMBS)
  3. Hydroxymethylbilane hydrolyase [cyclizing] (UROS), Hydroxymethylbilane hydrolyase [cyclizing] (UROS)
  4. Uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase (UROD)
This subpathway is part of the pathway protoporphyrin-IX biosynthesis, which is itself part of Porphyrin-containing compound metabolism.
View all proteins of this organism that are known to be involved in the subpathway that synthesizes coproporphyrinogen-III from 5-aminolevulinate, the pathway protoporphyrin-IX biosynthesis and in Porphyrin-containing compound metabolism.

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence.
