Figure 3: Conversion of methemoglobin to hemoglobin by methylene blue. Methylene blue is converted to leucomethylene blue by flavin reductase, acting as an electron donor. Leucomethylene blue is the active agent that converts methemoglobin to hemoglobin. Hemoglobin (Hb); methemoglobin (MetHb); red blood cells (RBC)
