DESCRIPTION

Phosphoglucose Isomerase (Escherichia coli)

EC 5.3.1.9
CAS: 9001-41-6

Synonyms:
glucose-6-phosphate isomerise; D-glucose-6-phosphate aldose-ketose-isomerase

Form:
In 3.2 M ammonium sulphate.

Stability: 
> 4 years at 4oC.

Specific activity:
~ 500 U/mg (25oC, pH 7.6 on fructose 6-phosphate);
~ 650 U/mg (40oC, pH 7.6 on fructose 6-phosphate).

Unit definition:
One unit of phosphoglucose isomerase activity is the amount of enzyme required to convert one µmole of D-fructose 6-phosphate to D-glucose 6-phosphate per min at pH 7.6.

Specificity:
Catalyses the reaction:
D-Glucose 6-phosphate = D-fructose 6-phosphate.

Applications:
Applications for the measurement of D-fructose in carbohydrate research and in the food and feeds, fermentation, wine, beverage and dairy industries.
