Summaries for BLVRA Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BLVRA Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the biliverdin reductase family, members of which catalyze the conversion of biliverdin to bilirubin in the presence of NADPH or NADH. Mutations in this gene are associated with hyperbiliverdinemia. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]

GeneCards Summary for BLVRA Gene

  • Hyperbiliverdinemia (HBLVD) [MIM:614156]: A condition characterized by a green discoloration of the skin, urine, serum, and other bodily fluids. It is due to increased biliverdin resulting from inefficient conversion to bilirubin. Affected individuals appear to have symptoms only in the context of obstructive cholestasis and/or liver failure. In some cases, green jaundice can resolve after resolution of obstructive cholestasis. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19580635}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
