Glucose 6 phosphate 1 dehydrogenase
Glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase
Glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase, G6PD
FunctionCatalyzes the rate-limiting step of the oxidative pentose-phosphate pathway, which represents a route for the dissimilation of carbohydrates besides glycolysis. The main function of this enzyme is to provide reducing power (NADPH) and pentose phosphates for fatty acid and nucleic acid synthesis.
Tissue specificityIsoform Long is found in lymphoblasts, granulocytes and sperm.
Involvement in diseaseAnemia, non-spherocytic hemolytic, due to G6PD deficiency
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase family.
Post-translational modificationsAcetylated by ELP3 at Lys-403; acetylation inhibits its homodimerization and enzyme activity. Deacetylated by SIRT2 at Lys-403; deacetylation stimulates its enzyme activity.
