Encodes a heme oxygenase-like protein lacking the conserved histidine residue at the active site that is usually involved in heme-iron coordination. It is unable to bind and degrade heme. Mutant analyses suggest a role in photomorphogenesis. The protein can bind the heme precursor, proto IX, which could be biologically significant and point to a role in the regulation of the two tetrapyrrole biosynthetic pathways.
