    Heme oxygenase (HO) catalyzes physiological heme degradation consisting of three sequential oxidation steps that use dioxygen molecules and reducing equivalents. We determined the crystal structure of rat HO-1 in complex with heme and azide (HO-heme-N(3)(-)) at 1.9-A resolution. The azide, whose terminal nitrogen atom is coordinated to the ferric heme iron, is situated nearly parallel to the heme plane, and its other end is directed toward the alpha-meso position of the heme. Based on resonance Raman spectroscopic analysis of HO-heme bound to dioxygen, this parallel coordination mode suggests that the azide is an analog of dioxygen. The azide is surrounded by residues of the distal F-helix with only the direction to the alpha-meso carbon being open. This indicates that regiospecific oxygenation of the heme is primarily caused by the steric constraint between the dioxygen bound to heme and the F-helix. The azide interacts with Asp-140, Arg-136, and Thr-135 through a hydrogen bond network involving five water molecules on the distal side of the heme. This network, also present in HO-heme, may function in dioxygen activation in the first hydroxylation step. From the orientation of azide in HO-heme-N(3)(-), the dioxygen or hydroperoxide bound to HO-heme, the active oxygen species of the first reaction, is inferred to have a similar orientation suitable for a direct attack on the alpha-meso carbon.
