Heme Oxygenase: Database IDs

Heme oxygenase 1 (HO-1) belongs to the heme oxygenase (HSP32) family and is encoded by a single copy gene in the human genome (HMOX1) 55 as well as in the mouse genome (Hmox1) 86.


Table 1 summarizes the relevant database IDs of the most widely expressed and heat-inducible isoform of human heme oxygenase, HO-1 (also known as Hsp32) and its mouse ortholog.
