General description

Protoporphyrin IX belongs to the porphyrin family, which are a class of tetrapyrroles. It is the iron-free form of hemin and amphiphilic in nature. It is the precursor of heme in its biosynthetic pathway.
Protoporphyrin IX imparts red color to heme and is the major porphyrin in blood. It is synthesized from protoporphyrinogen IX in the presence of protoporphyrinogen IX oxidase.

Application

Protoporphyrin IX has been used:
  • as a standard in protoporphyrin assays
  • in fluorescence spectra analysis
  • to treat cells in cell culture to study heme-mediated ferroportin 1 transcription
Activates soluble guanylyl cyclase.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Protoporphyrin IX penetrates human erythrocytes and aids the release of oxygen from them. It forms complexes with myoglobin and hemoglobin. It is a photosensitizer used in the photodynamic therapy of cancer.
Protoporphyrin IX levels are elevated in tumor cells due to metabolism anomalies compared to normal cells.
