Glucose-1-phosphate phosphodismutase


Glucose-1-phosphate phosphodismutase

In enzymology, a glucose-1-phosphate phosphodismutase (EC number|2.7.1.41) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

:2 D-glucose 1-phosphate ightleftharpoons D-glucose + D-glucose 1,6-bisphosphate

Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, D-glucose 1-phosphate, and two products, D-glucose and D-glucose 1,6-bisphosphate.

This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring phosphorus-containing groups (phosphotransferases) with an alcohol group as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is D-glucose-1-phosphate:D-glucose-1-phosphate 6-phosphotransferase. This enzyme participates in glycolysis / gluconeogenesis and starch and sucrose metabolism.
