High impact information on Blvra

  • Biliverdin reductase, Blvr, has been mapped on mouse chromosome 2, using an electrophoretic variant [1].
  • Localization of Blvr, biliverdin reductase, on mouse chromosome 2 [1].
  • In contrast to HO-1, the placental level of BVR-A activity remained low and did not show changes throughout the gestational period [2].
  • Here we describe the sequencing and annotation of a 341-kb region of mouse Chr 2 containing nine genes, including biliverdin reductase A (Blvra), and its comparison with the orthologous regions of the human and rat genomes [3].

Biological context of Blvra

  • In this study, we examined the distribution of HO-1 protein in the developing mouse embryo, as well as developmental changes of ho-1 gene expression, and the enzyme activity of HO and biliverdin IXalpha reductase (BVR-A) in placenta [2].
