Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (Leuconostoc mesenteroides)

CAS: 9001-40-5

glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (NADP+); D-glucose-6-phosphate:NADP+ 1-oxidoreductase

In 3.2 M ammonium sulphate.

> 4 years at 4oC.

Specific activity:
~ 800 U/mg (30oC, pH 7.8 on glucose-6-phosphate).

Unit definition:
One Unit of Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase activity is defined as the amount of enzyme required to convert one μmole of glucose 6-phosphate (3.3 mM) to 6-phosphogluconate per minute in the presence of NAD+ in Tris-HCl buffer (51 mM), pH 7.8, 30oC.

Catalyses the reaction:
D-glucose 6-phosphate + NADP+ = 6-phospho-D-glucono-1,5-lactone + NADPH + H+

Applications for the measurement of glucose and other hexoses in carbohydrate research and in the food and feeds, fermentation, wine, beverage and dairy industries.
