Subsystem: CPO analysis
This subsystem's description is:
Tetrapyrroles and their derivatives play an essential role in all living organisms. They are involved in many metabolic processes, such as energy transfer, catalysis, and signal transduction. In eukaryotes, the synthesis of tetrapyrroles is restricted to heme, siroheme, chlorophyll and bilins. Prokaryotes additionally form most complicated tetrapyrroles, such as corrinoids, heme d1 and coenzyme F430. An abundant and ubiquitous representative of this group of compounds is heme, a cyclic tetrapyrrole that contains a centrally chelated Fe.
