Gene: Blvrb (biliverdin reductase B (flavin reductase (NADPH))) Mus musculus
Symbol: Blvrb
Name: biliverdin reductase B (flavin reductase (NADPH))
Description: Predicted to have biliverdin reductase activity and riboflavin reductase (NADPH) activity. Predicted to be involved in heme catabolic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the cytosol; nucleoplasm; and terminal bouton. Is expressed in liver; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human BLVRB (biliverdin reductase B); PARTICIPATES IN porphyrin and chlorophyll metabolic pathway; riboflavin metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2-butoxyethanol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: biliverdin-IX beta-reductase; BVR-B; flavin reductase; flavin reductase (NADPH); FLR; FR; MGC11726; MGC27866; NADPH-dependent diaphorase; NADPH-flavin reductase
