Phosphoglucose Isomerase Application Notes Phosphoglucose Isomerase is used in sugar assays to convert fructose to glucose. There is evidence that phosphoglucose isomerase acts as a molecular messenger. It is produced and secreted by white blood cells, and acts to regulate the growth of several different cell types. Usage Statement Unless specified otherwise, MP Biomedical's products are for research or further manufacturing use only, not for direct human use.
