Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (EC 188.8.131.52) (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.Last update:
