|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||33428 Da|
|Antigen Region||201-230 aa|
|Other Names||Biliverdin reductase A, BVR A, Biliverdin-IX alpha-reductase, BLVRA, BLVR, BVR|
|Target/Specificity||This BLVRA antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 201-230 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human BLVRA.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||BLVRA Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Reduces the gamma-methene bridge of the open tetrapyrrole, biliverdin IX alpha, to bilirubin with the concomitant oxidation of a NADH or NADPH cofactor.|

Biliverdin reductases, such as BLVRA (EC 18.104.22.168), catalyze the conversion of biliverdin to bilirubin in the presence of NADPH or NADH (Komuro et al., 1996 [PubMed 8950184]).[supplied by OMIM].
