Function: 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.
Catalytic activity: Reduced riboflavin + NADP(+) = riboflavin + NADPH. Bilirubin + NAD(P)(+) = biliverdin + NAD(P)H.
Cellular location: Cytoplasm.
Tissue specificity: Predominantly expressed in liver and erythrocytes. At lower levels in heart, lung, adrenal gland and cerebrum.
