Components 1 kit Human BLVRB knockout HEK293T cell lysate (Lyophilized) 1 x 100µg Human Wild Type HEK293T cell lysate (Lyophilized) 1 x 100µg
FunctionBroad specificity oxidoreductase that catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of a variety of flavins, such as riboflavin, FAD or FMN, biliverdins, methemoglobin and PQQ (pyrroloquinoline quinone). Contributes to heme catabolism and metabolizes linear tetrapyrroles. Can also reduce the complexed Fe(3+) iron to Fe(2+) in the presence of FMN and NADPH. In the liver, converts biliverdin to bilirubin.
Tissue specificityPredominantly expressed in liver and erythrocytes. At lower levels in heart, lung, adrenal gland and cerebrum.
- Information by UniProt
- Biliverdin IX beta reductase
- Biliverdin reductase B
- biliverdin reductase B (flavin reductase (NADPH))
