Enzyme in pentose phosphate pathway
|Alternate Names||G-6-Pdase; G-6-P-DH|
|Application Notes||Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase was used to study atypical glycolysis in Clostridium thermocellum.|
|Base Catalog Number||151186|
|Biochemical Physiological Actions||Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase catalyzes the conversion of glucose-6-phosphate to 6-phosphogluconolacetone as the first step in the pentose phosphate pathway.|
|Format||Liquid, Supplied in 3.24 M ammonium sulfate|
|Isoelectric Point||4.6 (Lit.)|
|Personal Protective Equipment||Eyeshields, Gloves, half-mask respirator, multi-purpose combination respirator cartridge|
|Specific Activity||≥250 u/mg protein|
|Specificity||Either NAD+ or NADP+ serves as coenzyme; the reaction velocity with NAD+ being approximately 1.8 times greater than with NADP+ p-Glucose-6-phosphate is a preferential substrate for the enzyme; although p-Glucose reacts slowly; Fructose-6-phosphate; fructose-1; 6-diphoshate and ribose-5-phosphate are not considered to be substrates.|
|Unit Definition||One unit reduces one µmole NADP/min at 30 °C, pH 7.8, using glucose-6-phosphate as substrate.|
|Usage Statement||Unless specified otherwise, MP Biomedical's products are for research or further manufacturing use only, not for direct human use. For more information, please contact our customer service department.|
