Heme oxygenase (HO) is a microsomal enzyme that catalyzes the oxidation of heme to the antioxidant molecules, biliverdin and carbon monoxide. HO consists of two homologous isozymes, an inducible HO1 and a constitutively expressed HO2. HO1 is induced by a wide variety of stimuli including conditions of oxidative stress, inflammatory agents, transforming growth factor beta and heat shock. The increase in expression of HO1 is thought to be a cellular defense mechanism against oxidative stress since elevated HO could eventually generate more bilirubin, an anti-oxidant.
