Assessment of the breadth of binding promiscuity of heme towards human proteins

Abstract

Heme regulates important biological processes by transient interactions with many human proteins. The goal of the present study was to assess extends of protein binding promiscuity of heme. To this end we evaluated interaction of heme with >9000 human proteins. Heme manifested high binding promiscuity by binding to most of the proteins in the array. Nevertheless, some proteins have outstanding heme binding capacity. Bioinformatics analyses revealed that apart from typical haemoproteins, these proteins are frequently involved in metal binding or have the potential to recognize DNA. This study can contribute for understanding the regulatory functions of labile heme.
