Application

Bilirubin can be used to study cell biology, bioactive small molecules, biochemicals and reagents, plasma and blood proteins, and proteins and derivatives. Bilirubin-reducing enzymes effectively dispose of electrons produced by fermentolytic processes in the anaerobic bacteria, Pseudomonas dacunhae. Bilirubin has been used in a study to indicate a cytokine link between acute pancreatitis and fibromyalgia, as well as to study hematological abnormalities in hepatitis C virus infection.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Well over 99% of total bilirubin is transported as a conjugate with albumin. Abnormally high levels of bilirubin can cause severe neurological damage, but mildly elevated levels are linked to protection from oxidative stress.
