Heme binds to four cysteine-proline motifs in the C-terminal region of BACH1 and inhibits the DNA-binding activity of BACH1-MAFK heterodimers resulting in HMOX1 induction. MAFK separates from the complex, and heme recruits nuclear exporters for BACH1 (Yoshida et al, 1988; Ogawa et al, 2001; Suzuki et al, 2004).
