NIH Rare Diseases:43 Erythropoietic protoporphyria is a type of porphyria. porphyrias are caused by an abnormality in the heme production process. heme is essential in enabling our blood cells to carry oxygen and in breaking down chemical compounds in the liver. erythropoietic protoporphyria is caused by impaired activity of ferrocheletase, an important enzyme in heme production. this results in the build-up of protoporphyrin in the bone marrow, red blood cells, blood plasma, skin, and eventually liver. build up of protoporphyrin can cause extreme sensitivity to sunlight, liver damage, abdominal pain, gallstones, and enlargement of the spleen. last updated: 11/11/2008

MalaCards: Erythropoietic Protoporphyria, also known as ferrochelatase deficiency, is related to porphyria and porphyria cutanea tarda. An important gene associated with Erythropoietic Protoporphyria is FECH (ferrochelatase), and among its related pathways are Nuclear signaling by ERBB4 and SHC1 events in ERBB2 signaling. The compounds Protoporphyrinogen IX and ppix have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include liver, skin and bone, and related mouse phenotypes are growth/size/body and integument.
