Echelon Biosciences Research LabsSupplier Diversity Partner SN(IV)PROTOPORPHYRIN IX 250 mg  DFS Item

Manufacturer:  Echelon Biosciences Research LabsSupplier Diversity Partner FH080250MG

Sn (IV) Protoporphyrin IX is an inhibitor heme oxygenase (the enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of heme to biliverdin in the heme degradation pathway) but has also been found to stimulate production of the heme oxygenase protein. Contrast the activity of Co (III) Protoporphyrin which has been found to have similar activities to Sn (IV) Protoporphyrin but with a greater enhancement of heme oxygenase synthesis activity such that heme oxygenase activity is actually increased when administered in vivo while in vitro administration inhibits heme oxygenase activity. Heme oxygenase has been implicated in tumor cell resistance to chemotherapy, reduction of free radical formation and inflammation, and associated with vascular repair.
