Accepted name: 15,16-dihydrobiliverdin:ferredoxin oxidoreductase
Reaction: 15,16-dihydrobiliverdin + oxidized ferredoxin = biliverdin IXα + reduced ferredoxin

Other name(s): PebA
Systematic name: 15,16-dihydrobiliverdin:ferredoxin oxidoreductase
Comments: Catalyses the two-electron reduction of biliverdin IXα at the C15 methine bridge. It has been proposed that this enzyme and EC, phycoerythrobilin:ferredoxin oxidoreductase, function as a dual enzyme complex in the conversion of biliverdin IXα into phycoerythrobilin.
