Reaction: ATP + H2O + hemein = ADP + phosphate + hemeout
Systematic name: ATP phosphohydrolase (heme-exporting)
Comments: ABC-type (ATP-binding cassette-type) ATPase, characterised by the presence of two similar ATP-binding domains. Does not undergo phosphorylation during the transport process. An enzyme found in Gram-negative bacteria that exports heme.
