Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (EC 184.108.40.206) (G6PD)  catalyzes the first
step in the pentose pathway, the reduction of glucose-6-phosphate to
gluconolactone 6-phosphate. A lysine residue has been identified as a
reactive nucleophile associated with the activity of the enzyme. The sequence
around this lysine is totally conserved from bacterial to mammalian G6PD's and
can be used as a signature pattern.
