Superfamily: Haem-degrading domain

This entry includes Haem_bdg, which is a bacterial protein that is up-regulated in response to haemin- and peroxide-based oxidative stress. It interacts with the SenS/SenR two-component signal transduction system. Iron binds to surface-exposed lysine residues of an octomeric assembly of the protein PMID:19244623.
