In the metabolism of porphyrin, the enzyme uroporphyrinogen III decarboxylase generates coproporphyrinogen III from uroporphyrinogen III, and coproporphyrinogen III oxidase converts it into protoporphyrinogen IX.

Heme synthesis—note that some reactions occur in the cytoplasm and some in the mitochondrion (yellow)
