General description

Biliverdin reductase A (BVRA) contains a domain that acts as a serine/ threonine/ tyrosine kinase and belongs to the insulin receptor substrate family. Whereas most tyrosine kinase activity is membrane-bound, BVR is a soluble protein. BVRA gene is mapped to human chromosome 7p13.


Anti-Biliverdin Reductase A recognizes human Biliverdin Reductase A.


human biliverdin reductase A recombinant protein.


Anti-Biliverdin Reductase A antibody produced in rabbit may be used in western blotting and immunoprecipitation.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.

Storage and Stability

Store at -20 °C. For continuous use, the product may be stored at 2-8 °C for up to one month.For extended storage, freeze at -20 °C in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing, or storage in “frost-free” freezers, is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution bycentrifugation before use. Working dilution samples should be discard if not used within 12 hours.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Biliverdin reductase A (BVR, BLVRA) catalyzes the conversion of biliverdin to bilirubin in the presence of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH). Biliverdin reductase A is also considered as a major physiologic cytoprotectant and may have other protective properties in disease states. It has been shown to suppress experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis in rats. The depletion of the enzyme leads to the accumulation of cellular oxidants and augmented cell death. Mutation in the BVRA gene is implicated in hyperbiliverdinaemia or green jaundice.
