  • Function
    Catalyzes 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 specificity
    Isoform Long is found in lymphoblasts, granulocytes and sperm.
  • Pathway
    Carbohydrate degradation; pentose phosphate pathway; D-ribulose 5-phosphate from D-glucose 6-phosphate (oxidative stage): step 1/3.
  • Involvement in disease
    Anemia, non-spherocytic hemolytic, due to G6PD deficiency
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase family.
  • Post-translational
    Acetylated by ELP3 at Lys-403; acetylation inhibits its homodimerization and enzyme activity. Deacetylated by SIRT2 at Lys-403; deacetylation stimulates its enzyme activity.

  • ICC/IF image of ab993 stained MCF7 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab993 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

  • Glucose 6 Phosphate Dehydrogenase was immunoprecipitated from NIH/3T3 (mouse embryo fibroblast cell line) whole cell lysate (1 mg for IP, 20% of IP loaded) with ab993 at 6 µg/mg lysate. Western blot was performed from the immunoprecipitate using ab993 at 1 µg/ml.

    Lane 1: ab993 (batch 3) IP in NIH/3T3 whole cell lysate.

    Lane 2: ab993 (batch 4) IP in NIH/3T3 whole cell lysate.

    Lane 3: Control IgG IP in NIH/3T3 whole cell lysate.

    Detection: Chemiluminescence with exposure time of 30 seconds.

  • ab993 staining Glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase in Mouse skeletal muscle tissue sections by IHC-Fr (frozen sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 and blocked with 5% serum for 2 hours at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/500 in PBS Tween 20) for 12 hours at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor®-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/500) was used as secondary antibody.
