MetaCyc Compound Class: heme d

Superclasses: a macrocycle a porphyrin heme
an organometallic compound

'heme' is usually understood as any tetrapyrrolic chelate of iron. The terms 'ferroheme' and 'ferriheme' refer to the Fe(II) and Fe(III) oxidation states in heme (even though Fe(IV) is found as a catalytic intermediate in some systems).

The term "heme d" has been used to describe the heme group of cytochromes d. However, the various alternative forms for hemes found in cytochromes d preclude such a simple classification.
