A hemoprotein (also haemoprotein), or heme protein, is a metalloprotein containing a heme prosthetic group, either covalently or noncovalently bound to the protein itself. The iron in the heme is capable of undergoing oxidation and reduction (usually to +2 and +3, though stabilized ferryl [Fe+4] compounds are well known in the peroxidases).


Hemoproteins have diverse biological functions including:
