Literature associating BLVRB and methemoglobinemia

BLVRB [ENSP00000263368]

Biliverdin reductase B (flavin reductase (NADPH)); Broad 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; Short chain dehydrogenase/reductase superfamily
