ENZYME entry: EC 1.1.1.44

Accepted Name
Phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (NADP(+)-dependent, decarboxylating).
Alternative Name(s)
6-phosphogluconic carboxylase.
6-phosphogluconic dehydrogenase.
6PGD.
Phosphogluconic acid dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed
6-phospho-D-gluconate + NADP(+) <=> D-ribulose 5-phosphate + CO(2) + NADPH
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme participates in the oxidative branch of the pentose phosphate pathway, whose main purpose is to produce NADPH and pentose for biosynthetic reactions.
  • Highly specific for NADP(+).
  • Cf. EC 1.1.1.343.
