Glucose-6-Phosphate Assay Kit (Colorimetric) (ab83426) is a simple, sensitive and rapid test to quantify glucose-6-phospate (G6P) in a variety of samples. In the assay, glucose-6-phosphate is oxidized into an intermediate product which in turn converts the probe into an intensely colored product with an absorbance at OD=450 nm. This product can detect G6P in the range of 1-30 nmoles with a detection sensitivity ~10 µM G6P.
For higher sensitivity, we recommend our fluorometric assay Glucose-6-Phosphate Assay Kit - High Sensitivity (Fluorometric) (ab107923).

Glucose-6-phosphate (G6P) is a key sugar intermediate for glucose to get into cells, and then enter either metabolic pathways or storage. G6P can enter the glycolytic pathway, the pentose phosphate shunt or be stored as glycogen or starch. G6P is transformed by G6PDH to generate reducing equivalents in the form of NADPH. This is particularly important in red blood cells where a G6PDH deficiency leads to hemolytic anemia.
