Abstract The three isoforms of heme oxygenase (HO), the rate-limiting enzyme in heme degradation, are the products of different genes that show marked differences in regulation and expression. Why is there redundancy in the heme degradation pathway, and why are there differences in tissue expression of HO isoenzymes are unanswered questions? An interaction between HO-1 and HO-2 is suspected by the co-localization of these enzymes in the lung and regions of the brain. Using multiple models and assays, we demonstrated an interaction between HO-1 and HO-2 at amino acids 0-45 of HO-2 and amino acids 58-80 of HO-1. The latter corresponds to a highly conserved, hydrophilic, and exposed region of the protein. Furthermore, the observed activity of the HO-1.HO-2 complex was lower than that expected from the sum of HO-1- and HO-2-derived activities, suggesting that this interaction serves to limit HO enzymatic activity. We speculate that this HO-1.HO-2 protein interaction may promote non-enzymatic functions of HO. This article was published in J Biol Chem and referenced in Journal of Neonatal Biology
