Biliverdin reductase, catalytic (IPR015249)

Short name: Biliverdin_Rdtase_cat

Domain relationships



This entry represents the biliverdin reductase, catalytic domain, which adopts a structure ccontaining a six-stranded beta-sheet that is flanked on one face by several alpha-helices. This domain contains the catalytic active site which reduces the gamma-methene bridge of the open tetrapyrrole, biliverdin IX alpha, to bilirubin with the concomitant oxidation of a NADH or NADPH cofactor [PMID: 12079357].
