Phycoerythrobilin synthase (EC 1.3.7.6, PebS) is an enzyme with systematic name (3Z)-phycoerythrobilin:ferredoxin oxidoreductase (from biliverdin IX alpha). This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(3Z)-phycoerythrobilin + 2 oxidized ferredoxin biliverdin IX alpha + 2 reduced ferredoxin

This enzyme, from a cyanophage infecting oceanic cyanobacteria of the Prochlorococcus genus.
