Base Catalog Number: 151187
Alternate Names: G-6-Pdase; G-6-P-DH
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.
CAS : # 9001-40-5
EC No : 232-602-6
Extinction Coefficient : E0.1% = 1.15 (280.5 nm, 0.09 M Tris-HCl, pH 7.2)(Lit.)
Format : Lyophilized powder
Isoelectric Point : 4.6 (Lit.)
MDL No : MFCD00081656
PPE : Eyeshields, Gloves, half-mask respirator, multi-purpose combination respirator cartridge
Source : Lueconostoc mesenteroides
Specific Activity : =400 u/mg solid
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 will reduce 1.0 µmole of NAD+ per minute at pH 7.8 and 25 °C.
