 [he″mo-pek´sin]
a heme-binding serum protein.

he·mo·pex·in

(hē'mō-peks'in), [MIM*142290]
A serum glycoprotein related to β-globulins, with molecular weight around 57,000, containing 22% carbohydrate; important in binding heme and porphyrins, preventing excretion, and perhaps regulating heme in drug metabolism.

Such elements of structure as pro-domain, catalytic domain, hinge region and haemopexin domain can be identified.
The name of next domain refers to haemopexin - a haeme-binding and transporting protein.
TIMPs can be bound to metalloproteinases within catalytic and/or haemopexin domain, as shown on Figure 1.
