Gene : HMBS Homo sapiens

Name  ? hydroxymethylbilane synthase Cytological Location  11q23.3
Brief Description  hydroxymethylbilane synthase
Description  This gene encodes a member of the hydroxymethylbilane synthase superfamily. The encoded protein is the third enzyme of the heme biosynthetic pathway and catalyzes the head to tail condensation of four porphobilinogen molecules into the linear hydroxymethylbilane. Mutations in this gene are associated with the autosomal dominant disease acute intermittent porphyria. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described.
