There is strong evidence to suggest that the primary activator is an iron source, in the form of Fe2+, haem or both.
In the macrophages iron is predominantly recovered from haem by the action of induced form of haem oxygenease (30).
Diets that are low in iron, high in inhibitors, with little haem iron intake, are the most common causes of iron deficiency.
The docking simulation result shows the participation of about 50% active site residues of falcipain-III in the formation of 4-5 hydrogen bonds with leupeptin analogues to stabilize the complex and provide force to inhibit the enzymatic action of falcipain-III for stopping the process of haem degradation and finally killing of malaria parasite.

Previously, researchers had estimated that red meat contributes to around 17,000 cases of bowel cancer per year, based on two different dietary factors thought to play a part in promoting bowel cancer because a substance called haem, can damage the lining of the colon, while burning meat produces cancer-causing compounds.
It is a tetramer of four polypeptides, each containing a haem group which reacts with hydrogen peroxide4.

One compound in particular, haem, which gives red meat its colour, has been shown to damage the lining of the colon in some studies.
Fifty-two contributed chapters begin with coverage of stem cells and haemopoiesis, erthropoiesis, iron metabolism and disorders of haem synthesis, iron overload, and megaloblastic anaemia; the collection concludes with primary immune thrombocytopenia, haemtological aspects of system disease, and of tropical diseases, and neonatal haematology.
